Bureau Veritas, a provider of testing, inspection, and certification services, launched its latest decommissioning guide on 23 May.  

"Decommissioning on the UK Continental Shelf—An Overview of Regulations" provides up-to-date guidance in the regulations that apply to decommissioning work, from operators and stakeholders to the supply chain.

This detailed guide describes the necessary procedures for operators and duty holders to plan, execute, and follow-up decommissioning work and help them comply with the relevant legislation.

Having a firm understanding of the rules and regulations that should be applied across the breadth of activities when undertaking a decommissioning project is key to successfully delivering on these type of large-scale projects.

Paul Shrieve, chief executive North Sea offshore operations and marine and offshore operations director, said, “Bureau Veritas decommissioning services cover all types of assets in an offshore field, whether platforms are floating or fixed. As experienced decommissioning engineers and inspectors, Bureau Veritas has worked closely with dedicated partners in HSE services and plugging and abandoning assurance, and have built a wealth of knowledge that we feel is vital to share in order to support all those involved in North Sea and global decommissioning projects.”
