Call for Presentations


A panel of conference committee members, drawn from OGUK, Decom North Sea and the OGTC will review each abstract and confirmation of successful applications will be given in October.


Day 1 – Tuesday 26 November

This session will showcase recent developments in science and technology and how such developments are improving the outcomes for decommissioning projects or will have a tangible influence going forward. We’re looking for technology companies that are looking to develop or deploy their idea in late life that would benefit from additional exposure at the conference by offering the chance to exhibit on one of the conference days in the Technology Zone, hosted by the Oil & Gas Technology Centre and an additional opportunity for a selected group to take part in our short “Pitch Battles” session in the main conference programme.


Day 2 – Wednesday 27 November

It has long been recognised that well decommissioning represents the largest portion of the overall cost of decommissioning and industry is focused on that cost challenge. During this session we plan to showcase performance improvement initiatives, technologies, contracting models and the like which are making demonstrable inroads into the well decommissioning cost base. The emphasis will be on sharing developments and lessons learned with delegates.


Day 2 – Wednesday 27 November

The decommissioning sector is now established as a key part of late-life planning for oil and gas assets in the UK. This session will look beyond current horizons and will seek to highlight the medium and longer-term opportunities or challenges for those involved in oil and gas decommissioning. During this session we hope to cover issues such as the energy transition, environmental decision-making, re-purposing and the decommissioning of renewable energy installations. It is also important that the industry can recruit, retain and develop skills to address these challenges and presentations on how to build the required workforce to meet the sector’s challenges are also encouraged.


Day 2 – Wednesday 27 November

Cross-industry focus is to deliver decommissioning in a safe, environmentally sound and cost-effective manner at the right time. This session is a platform to spotlight recent decommissioning projects and achievements and share experience and learnings of decommissioning in practice. Priority in this session will be to facilitate the sharing of lessons learned aimed at improving outcomes across the complete scope of decommissioning, from planning, through execution to post-decommissioning activities.
