Design for Decommissioning


A truly collaborative and non-partisan JIP to reduce decommissioning costs and improve project execution. FREE to participate and easy to access. Industry wide stakeholder participation and utilisation and lessons learned for shared benefit.

The challenges and issues encountered at the end of a facility’s life may not be foreseen or correctly considered during the design phase. This lack of attention can make the eventual decommissioning work more technically challenging and costly.  The purpose of the database is to identify decommissioning issues based on real industry lessons learnt and translate these into potential solutions which could be implemented in future designs.
