A circular economy approach to decommissioning.

Decommissioning is a rising challenge and brings questions as to the actual engineering of assets. Assets for producing petroleum are a great tool during their lifetime. But what is to be done with them when they are no longer of use? This is the question that arises from decommissioning rigs, pipelines, refineries, floating vessels, gas stations, etc. The Circular Economy approach seeks to find new uses for assets and their components, consistent with commercial and sustainable objectives. The – primarily financial and environmental – burden of decommissioning oil and gas assets would become more attractive. The Circular Economy approach to decommissioning brings a new perspective that considers the re-use and regeneration as critical aspects, to be considered along with other matters from the earliest stages of designing and constructing assets.

Sophie Theys will present the application of circular economy concepts to decommissioning and propose ways of integrating such circular concepts at the earliest stage of building oil and gas assets.
