Oil & Gas Late Life and Decommissioning Hackathon
FREE TO ATTEND
FREE TO ATTEND
As the Southern North Sea matures decommissioning is now a reality for many operators and is certainly on the radar for others.
Estimated decommissioning costs for the UK side of SNS published by the OGA are in the region of £7bn with the Netherlands forecasts also significant. For operators decommissioning is an expense, with no profits therefore working collaboratively with other operators and key stakeholders will be essential to help reduce these burdensome costs. Know-how, innovative solutions and technologies will be vital, and these reciprocal events are a major Southern North Sea effort to bring Operators and Supply Chain companies together to collectively come up with the best solutions to lowering decommissioning costs.
The UK Hackathon will feature presentations from UK & Dutch operators including Shell, Sprit Energy and Oranje Nassau who will each share their current challenges in decommissioning followed by interactive sessions to discuss potential solutions. A number of the key challenges will be shared prior to the event and undoubtedly many more will emerge during the interactive sessions. These discussions will be captured and shared with attendees, and will be an invaluable source of information to the supply chain providing guidance and direction as to what areas of innovation their potential clients are looking for. It will also be a unique opportunity to make new operator contacts across the wider UK/ Netherlands basin.
There is an acceptance many cost saving solutions lie with the contractor community and these events have in the past proved effective in bringing together service companies with potential clients to highlight their innovative and problem-solving approach.
