Description

1200 – 1300 - Decommissioning

There are 475 oil & gas installations in UK seas that will have to be decommissioned. By 2018 over 50 of these will be approaching or entering decommissioning. The OSPAR Convention prohibits the dumping, and leaving wholly or partly in place, of most offshore installations (OSPAR Decision 98/3), although some large structures are exempt (derogation cases). Given the large number of impending decommissioning cases, there is a clear need for a highly efficient survey and monitoring procedure that limits potential costs but also fits the regulators' needs. Recent advances in marine autonomy offer the prospect of substantial efficiency gains over current practise, but now require the development of effective and efficient approaches for decommissioning monitoring, which will be provided by this project.
