Gain an in-depth understanding of the activities required to plan the decommissioning of a North Sea offshore field. Developed in collaboration with the OGA, BEIS and HSE, this course will give participants a thorough understanding of legislation and the likely interpretation that will be applied by the Regulatory Authorities.
Anyone who is working or intends to work in the decommissioning sector of the Oil and Gas industry and needs a comprehensive knowledge of the many activities that are part of late life operations and decommissioning.
This course uses an example project plan covering the main phases of decommissioning work comprising:
Late Life Production
Removal concept select
Rig and critical equipment upgrade
Wells plug and abandonment
Disposal and close-out
The key activities for each phase are examined in detail and course participants can apply the project plan to their own examples either for platform or subsea facilities.
Legislation is described in detail and there is an explanation of the processes that the Regulatory Authorities will expect including their early involvement and consultation.
Participants can choose to study all the activities in sequence or to select specific activities in any order.
