DeepSea Environmental Monitoring Cluster Round Table

The effective decommissioning of offshore platforms, subsea wells, and related assets is one of the most important challenges facing the oil and gas industry today and in the future. Key environmental issues in decommissioning include dealing with any potential direct effects on the marine ecosystem. Decommissioning must be an essentially multidisciplinary process, involving: engineering, environmental, financial, political, and safety. Subsea technology can improve the environment monitoring during the decomissioning process and reduce the cost of long-term monitoring of the area before, during and after the installations are removed. Despite international legislation concerning procedures for rig decommissioning, there is still little international consensus on best practices for decommissioning processes. Collaboration on developing methods and technology can assure technical integrity and safe operations. The DSEM Cluster Round Table will bring multidisciplinary professionals together to discuss and exchange experiences relating the practical problems of environmental monitoring management during decommissioning processes of offshore structures in Norway and Brazil.
