Decommissioning and Restoration

We work with our clients to develop a late-life strategy for existing assets. This covers life-extension, Operational Expenditure (OPEX) reduction studies, including manning reduction, and, ultimately, an examination of decommissioning options.
Our processes help deliver robust, engineered solutions, strategies and plans, through the comparative assessment of options. The aim is to implement the best outcome in terms of technical feasibility, safety, cost, environmental and societal impact that fulfils stakeholder and regulatory requirements.
By applying risk analysis techniques and integrating our in-house multi-discipline engineering expertise, we develop the selected concept into a comprehensive decommissioning programme. This incorporates a clear understanding of the applicable risks and contingencies required through the D&R process.
We can assess potential contaminant levels, including mercury, in the abandoned facilities. As a result, it is possible to calculate the environmental impact if facilities are left in place.
Our established tools and processes help our clients understand their liabilities, risks and opportunities; through knowledge and experience we find the solutions together.
Through our deeper understanding of D&R we have been at the forefront of developing ideas and initiatives for joint industry project groups, industry bodies and regulatory authorities.
