Decommissioning is holistic
During Offshore Seminar, Reuderink will explain the importance of planning of decommissioning. Reuderink: “Planning of decommissioning is the key for safe and cost-effective removal. An integrated design for decommissioning starts in the front and not at the late life of an asset. On-going evaluation of the decommission on the topics of re-use and recycling could support the speed of the energy transition and have a positive effect on the estimated removal cost at the moment of decommissioning.”
A holistic decommissioning process can be determined also in a later stage, he adds. Combining the decommissioning with other operators could have an advantage or ready to remove strategy to capture any slot of an available vessel.
