The 20th North Sea Decommissioning Conference
The Norwegian Petroleum Society (NPF) and the program committee have great pleasure in inviting you to the 20th North Sea Decommissioning Conference in Stavanger 2-4th March 2020.
In 2020 the NPF Decommissioning Conference will celebrate its 20th year. Although now decommissioning is now mainstream sector with the upstream oil and gas industry, the NPF conference was established by a small group of specialists to share lessons within what was then a new and emerging industry. Whilst shifting focus to reflect decommissioning issues of the day, the conference has retained its distinct emphasis on depth of insight provided by the participation of the industry’s leaders and most knowledgeable and credible experts. Previous participants has confirmed the conference reputation as a first class forum for lessons sharing and networking with practitioners within the North Sea region and beyond.
In 2020, The program committee has put together a program that will address emerging societal interest and regulatory perspectives, new technology developments, project execution lessons and consideration of challenges the industry faces. The emphasis will continue to be analysis and sharing of high impact lessons.
We hope that you will consider attending and are confident that your participation will enhance your knowledge and business opportunities within decommissioning.

INDUSTRY CONTEXT AND MARKET OUTLOOK
At the first NPF Decommissioning Conference in 1998, the Brent Spar incident had raised the public profile of a niche part of the upstream Oil and Gas business to global public attention. Much of that legacy remains and decommissioning has become established as a major sector. Much has been learned but needs to be done to prepare for in the next twenty years?
