Decom North Sea (DNS), the offshore oil and gas decommissioning forum, is hosting a lunch and learn event to share valuable insight into decommissioning, including lessons learned from recent projects.
The lunch and learn will take place on Wednesday, January 15, at the Doubletree by Hilton Hotel, Aberdeen, from 12-2pm.
The event will include a presentation from Offshore Installation Services (OIS), a contractor specialising in decommissioning project management that recently completed its 17th offshore campaign by permanently abandoning six wells in the Central North Sea. Business development manager Michael Noble will present the results of the operation as well as lessons learned.
OIS vice president Tom Selwood said: “Our most recent well abandonment project was successfully completed on behalf of three operators in the North Sea.. We utilise a vessel-based solution to abandon the wells, which offers significant time and cost savings over traditional rig-based methods.
“By adopting a flexible approach to the work schedule and keeping an open dialogue with the three operators on the project, we successfully completed the project in November and we look forward to sharing the lessons learned.
“OIS has been a member of DNS for nearly over three years and we find a lot of value in events such as this. It is beneficial to have an open forum to discuss decommissioning and having a strong body representing the numerous faces of the sector adds credibility to what we do.”
