The NPF Decommissioning Conference has established itself as a leading international decommissioning conference in the North Sea Region. It is a forum for industry leaders to address key decommissioning topics within the wider context of the upstream business. Do not miss this opportunity to enhance you knowledge and business opportunities within decommissioning.
This year’s conference 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.
The conference will be held at the stylish Radisson Blu Atlantic Hotel situated in the city centre of Stavanger.
These are the main themes at this year conference:
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? Hear presentations from ExxonMobil, Oil & Gas UK and Rystad Energy
INTERNATIONAL POLICY AND REGULATION
The OSPAR Convention formed the foundation for Decommissioning Regulation within the North Sea region, but debate continues on the best policy direction. At the conference you can hear the different perspectives of leading regulators and industry leaders: Offshore Petroleum Regulator for Environment and Decommissioning, Former head of Decom at the OGA, Greenpeace International, Oil & Gas UK, Equinor and Global Marine
IMPROVING SAFETY IN DECOMISSIONING EXECUTION
Decommissioning execution presents new safety challenges to an industry that has successfully managed inherently high hazards decades. Results, particularly in onshore demolition and recycling have been variable and there is an appetite to improve. There is opportunity to learn from experience of major projects and reflect on how we can capture lessons from our mainstream activities and beyond. Hear from Shell UK, Astonglen Associates, Kværner, The Norwegian Environment Agency, Step change in safety
TECHNOLOGY & SUPPLY CHAIN DEVELOPMENT
Technology continues to be a key enabler to safe and efficient decommissioning, and capture of lessons learned has enabled the industry to make great strides over the last twenty years. Still, significant challenges remain. Hear from a selection of industry innovators abbot ideas, challenges and opportunities: Hear from Allseas, Fairfield Decom Limited, SPEX, The Oil & Gas Technology Centre, Repsol
PROJECT UPDATES AND LESSONS SHARING
Do not miss the opportunity to learning lessons from the practitioners that are engaged in major projects and has been a pillar of the NPF decommissioning conference since its inception. Hear from Aker BP, Repsol. Petro Well Services, Equinor, Subsea7, Heerema Marine Contractors and Petronas
