Organizers say the exclusive case study presentation and special gala dinner is one of several new features of the summit, which is now in its seventh year.
Expanded track sessions will showcase specialists in well P&A, emerging environmental challenges, subsea infrastructure, pipelines, and cost estimation.
More than 700 attendees will get to have their say in the biggest live polling event in the decommissioning calendar, and get expert panel commentary on the findings to the most controversial decommissioning topics.
The latest approaches to decommissioning TLPs, Spars, FPSOs and fixed structures in deepwater will be explored, and regulators and operators from the Gulf of Mexico, North Sea, Asia-Pacific, South America and Alaska will provide a unique global perspective on decommissioning and abandonment challenges.
“The summit is the world’s biggest D&A networking and business development experience,” said DecomWorld project director, Philip Chadney. “Since deepwater represents the next major frontier for the industry, the insights on offer will be invaluable in setting a course for 2015 and beyond.”
Chadney said a key theme of this year’s event was getting beyond the view of decommissioning and abandonment as isolated activities. “We need to connect them with the entire asset lifecycle, from design to operations, to eradicate the legacy issues and maximize cost efficiencies,” he said.
