D&A to Asset Retirement: Why the Shift?

Typically D&A activity is viewed as an isolated event or project which is entirely separate from production. Operators are now starting to change their viewpoint and strategy. The OARC 2014 is here to drive forward this shift, to ensure you reap the long term benefits associated with a robust asset retirement strategy.

Here's why it matters to you:

  1. Post-Wood Review drive to maximise North Sea resources means there is a need to approach D&A in the wider context as part of end of field life management
  2. Critical need to reduce escalating D&A costs as the North Sea industry approaches the £35bn decommissioning and abandonment challenge
  3. The only way to achieve economies of scale, and with up to 478 platforms reported to need removing before 2045, it's never been a more important time
  4. Allocating resources upfront to eradicate bottlenecks which are currently putting extraordinary pressure on the decommissioning supply chain 
  5. Encouraging integration & collaboration at every level with thorough up-front planning to identify synergies and cost efficiencies
