Towards Sustainable Oil Recovery: Innovations in Decommissioning Oil Rigs, Refineries, and Fuel Networks

Decommissioning Theatre

In the pursuit of safeguarding our environment, the Australian Government has recognised decommissioning as the paramount strategy to mitigate future environmental risks posed by oil and gas infrastructure. However, this process presents a formidable challenge, requiring solutions that transcend traditional methods.

Central to this challenge is the imperative to identify and implement 100% environmentally sustainable approaches. Mere relocation of environmental burdens or creating future liabilities is not acceptable. Instead, the focus is on fostering a circular economy model, where decommissioned assets are repurposed or recycled, minimising emissions and achieving zero landfill.

In this presentation, we delve into groundbreaking solutions that not only address the environmental risks associated with decommissioning but also pave the way for a more sustainable future in the oil and gas industry. From innovative technologies to holistic strategies, we explore avenues that lead to effective, responsible, and environmentally sound decommissioning practices.
