The decommissioning of North Sea oil and gas installations which have ceased production is becoming an increasingly significant activity for operators in the UK Continental Shelf. It is expected to attract continued interest from parties both within and outside the oil and gas sector, particularly with regard to issues of environmental, social and economic impact. This document, Guidelines on Stakeholder Engagement during Decommissioning Activities, serves as a central reference for operators, so that consistent good practice in stakeholder engagement can prevail across the oil and gas sector. These Guidelines build on Oil & Gas UK’s 2006 edition, which is referenced by DECC as part of its own decommissioning guidance.
