Creating value with sustainable decommissioning: learning from best practice in North Sea oil and gas, and offshore wind

Decommissioning of energy infrastructure presents a huge challenge for operators, yet opens a new global market of at least 1 trillion USD with tremendous business opportunities. 

The North Sea oil and gas sector has made promising progress in decommissioning expertise and cost reductions. Decommissioning for offshore wind is only just starting. This webinar will facilitate knowledge exchange between the North Sea oil and gas, and offshore wind sectors. 

A key part of this webinar will be the speakers who will be sharing the latest insights into decommissioning of North Sea oil and gas from the perspective of a circular economy, and who will talk about proactive approaches to optimise values throughout the lifecycle of energy infrastructure assets, including “design for decommissioning”. 

Funding acknowledgement
This event will close the ESRC £15k funded Impact Acceleration Account project “The social, economic, technical and environmental values of North Sea oil & gas decommissioning for local communities and companies” by University of Leeds and Zero Waste Scotland (part of grant ES/T501955/1), and enable knowledge exchange for the collaborative EPSRC, University of Leeds, Offshore Renewable Energy Catapult and Department for International Trade secondment project “A Sustainable Circular Economy for Offshore Wind”.
