Shell, ExxonMobil, BG Group, Woodside join Asia-Pacific Decommissioning Workshop

Offshore liability in the Asia-Pacific is at an all-time high, with ageing infrastructure presenting critical challenges for the planning and execution of decommissioning & abandonment projects. Experts estimate a decommissioning market size of US$32 Billion.

The regulatory landscape for decommissioning continues to evolve – providing the mechanism for advances in the region. Operators are collaborating with regulators to progress local decommissioning guidelines, whilst groups representing the ASEAN Nations build partnerships to establish broader decommissioning best practice.

Successful preparation for decommissioning & abandonment is crucial to ensure that projects are carried out in a compliant, cost-effective and environmentally-sound way. But with only a limited number of projects in the region to draw from, taking a giant leap towards project execution presents an extremely challenging and costly prospect.

To ensurethat the Asia-Pacific Offshore Industry successfully prepares for decommissioning, applies global best-practices and shareslatest regional developments,DecomWorld are gathering the leading experts in Kuala Lumpur for three days of intense training and insight. With confirmed speakers from leading operators including Shell, ExxonMobil, BG Group, Pertaminaand Woodside, the 5th Annual Offshore Decommissioning Training Workshop is the premier meeting point for decommissioning and abandonment training in the Asia-Pacific.
