Weatherford, one of the world's largest oilfield services companies, has signed on as a sponsor of the upcoming Offshore Decommissioning Training Workshop, Asia Pacific.

The two-day event is being held 31 October - 1 November at the Novotel Clarke Quay, Singapore.

Weatherford's wide array of services span the entire life cycle of an oil and gas well, from evaluation, drilling and completion on through prevention and eventual intervention and decommissioning.

A fast-growing, results-driven firm boasting more than 250 strategic acquisitions, Weatherford's core strengths are its depth of institutional knowledge, its efficiency and its passion for productivity.

With its sponsorship of the Asia-Pac workshop, Weatherford acknowledges that decommissioning is going to be a red-hot market niche in the Asia Pacific in the near and foreseeable future.

At present, more than 800 structures in the region are more than 25 years old, meaning that the time is now to start planning for decommissioning. According to the most recent analyses, this market is worth in excess of $32 billion and presents both a major challenge from operators and a huge opportunity for service provides.

The 4th Offshore Decommissioning Training Workshop, Asia Pacific is the only established meeting place for decommissioning experts in the region.
