With regional regulations being pushed forward, experts from the Department of Mineral Fuels (Thailand), BPMIGAS (Indonesia), Environmental Protection Agency (New Zealand) and ASCOPE (South East Asia) will join a panel to discuss the latest legislative and guideline documents which will ensure the safe advancement of offshore decommissioning operations in the region.
Attendees from the Asia Pacific, North Sea and the Gulf of Mexico will be in attendance at the meeting to learn best practice decommissioning approaches as well as to network with the key companies in the region to ensure a safe and cost-effective approach to decommissioning operations.
Event organizer DecomWorld stated “This meeting is hugely important for the Asia Pacific market. With roughly 700 assets coming up to or exceeding the 25 year mark, the decommissioning market presents large liabilities for operators and a huge amount of potential for contractors. Experts predict that the market for decommissioning in the Asia Pacific could be as high as $32 Billion USD.”
“The training workshop will be moderated by two globally-recognised experts who will provide advice on decommissioning approaches which is something not to be missed! As well as this, the major regulators and operators from the Asia Pacific region will be in attendance to network and share ideas and approaches. This is a very important meeting to help drive the decommissioning industry forward.”
The workshop will be moderated by Win Thornton, Vice President – Decommissioning at BP and Brian Twomey, Managing Director, Reverse Engineering. With almost 60 years combined experience in offshore construction and decommissioning, Win and Brian will teach the delegation in a highly interactive manner with an emphasis on participant questions and inquiry.
