ABB Consulting has completed a study on behalf of Decom North Sea (DNS), the representative body for the decommissioning industry and Zero Waste Scotland (ZWS), focusing on methods for cost-efficient decommissioning practice.

The ‘Removal and Disposal Landscaping Study’ was launched in March 2015 to identify efficient decommissioning solutions which encompass re-use and thereby contribute to the circular economy approach for maximising the useful life of assets.

By considering the three principal recognised platform removal methods and determining their advantages and disadvantages, the report also examines the effect each removal method has on the opportunities for re-use and resale, ultimately recommending seven key actions to promote the benefits of alternative methodologies and the principles of the Circular Economy.

Nigel Jenkins, DNS Chief Executive explains why this study was commissioned: “With decommissioning cost forecast rising, currently in the region of £45billion, it is essential we find innovative solutions to reduce the cost burden for both the operators and the UK Tax payer. This important research starts the journey towards increased efficiency, circular economy principles and presents opportunities for the UK supply chain.”
