The Future of the UKCS Offshore Decommissioning Industry

Posted by Claxton Marketing Team on 13-Dec-2018 10:00:00

The Offshore Decommissioning Conference 2018, run jointly by Decom North Sea and Oil & Gas UK, took place from 26 – 28 November at the Fairmont Hotel, St Andrews. Around 450 delegates gathered at the conference focused on the current challenges around shutting down oil and gas infrastructure together with exhibitions and keynote speeches by industry experts, and where the 2018 Decommissioning Insight Report was launched.

The report provides insight into the decommissioning market for the next ten years and provides context for operators in scheduling, forecasting and planning, and widens the scope for supply chain expertise and deployment of services.

In this blog we provide an overview of the key themes discussed in the report. Regular readers of the Claxton blog will recall Head of Brand & Marketing, Andy Norman’s piece: The Future of the UKCS Offshore Decommissioning Industry: 2017 Predictions, and we follow on to ascertain how the predictions have materialised from two years ago.

How to utilise a jack-up lift barge for decommissioning projects

Posted by Matt Marcantonio on 24-Jul-2018 09:30:00

Rigless abandonments are nothing new, in fact, Claxton performed the world’s first rigless platform well abandonment campaign on the Esmond, Forbes and Gordon field over 20 years ago. However, in recent years we have seen an increased demand for combined platform and jack-up lift barge (JULB) operations. This blog, which is part of our new decommissioning series, explains how a jack-up lift barge can be utilised to realise time and cost savings whilst increasing efficiency.
