CNR does not pigeonhole people in either onshore or offshore roles. Onshore personnel take roles offshore during campaigns, while offshore personnel take roles in the office so that they can contribute their insights. For example, Ninian North’s offshore installation manager joined the onshore project team to contribute to the platform removal preparation, bringing to bear in-depth knowledge of the asset. This flexible approach to staffing enables timely cross-learning and continuous improvement. The breadth of diversity in the decommissioning team also allows the company to leverage a broader range of perspectives, experiences, and ideas. The approach has enabled CNR to meet or exceed the OGA cost-reduction target.
