Plunging oil prices in late 2014 will likely accelerate activity in 2015 but not beyond levels previously witnessed. Between 2010-2014, Gulf of Mexico decommissioning generated approximately $9 billion in spending, regularly exceeding $1.5 billion per year. The market size of decommissioning in the Gulf of Mexico circa January 2015 is valued at $26 billion, broken up into a shallow water segment worth an estimated $18 billion and a deepwater segment worth an estimated $8 billion.
