Decommissioning offshore Oil and Gas installations is an inevitable part of the ‘Life of Field’ activities. It carries a multi-billion $ cost with no commercial return.

The course will provide delegates with a comprehensive understanding of all aspects of offshore decommissioning from late life operations, through to planning, estimating, preparation, execution and close out. A key learning point for delegates will be the opportunity to take part in real life exercises related to decommissioning of a typical offshore asset. Also, delegates will have the rare opportunity of discussing and comparing their individual decommissioning requirements, both with the trainer and with other delegates.

This is a HRD Corp claimable course: 10001312779


The delegates will be taken on a journey starting in the late life of field, circa 8 years from cessation of production (COP). Over the 3 days of the course, the delegates will progress through early planning, preparation, and finally execution and close out of a typical offshore field. During this time the delegates, through a series of exercises, will participate in the development of a decommissioning strategy, schedule and estimate for a typical field.
