Decom North Sea (DNS), the offshore oil and gas decommissioning forum, will host a lunch and learn event to share valuable insight into decommissioning, including lessons learned from recent projects.



The event will take place on Wednesday, January 15, at the Doubletree by Hilton Hotel, Aberdeen, from 12-2 p.m.



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 utilize 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.”
 


There will also be a presentation and live flight demonstration from aerial inspection & survey specialist Cyberhawk Innovations, who recently won an Oil & Gas UK award for its work on Shell’s Brent Delta platform.
 


In addition, Bond Dickinson LLP, a national law firm with a dedicated branch of energy specialists, will present on environmental challenges and relevant regulatory news for North Sea decommissioning.
 


DNS chief executive Brian Nixon said, “As the first lunch and learn of the new year, we look forward to this event setting a precedent for increased knowledge share in the coming months. These events are a beneficial way for individuals within the sector to get together and discuss decommissioning while hearing presentations from experienced companies and individuals and this event will start off a year of further collaboration.”



DNS has grown since its inception in 2010 to have more than 230 members drawn from operators, major contractors, service specialists and technology developers. With annual decommissioning expenditure in the North Sea forecast to top £1billion within a few years, DNS was set up to tackle the main areas of weakness, which are inhibiting decommissioning supply-chain capability.
