Alternative 'life support' for decommissioning

Are you an expert in modular power generation? Do you have solutions for integrated utilities, such as potable water, heating, venting and air conditioning, and fire and gas detection?

We're investing c.£1 million in a portfolio of projects to solve our decommissioning challenge. All we need at this stage is the spark of an idea.

If you think you have a solution, we want to hear from you!

What's the 'Call for Ideas' all about?

One of the largest decommissioning costs for an asset owner is the operation of the facility, including power generation and utilities, also known as ‘life support’ systems, from when it ceases production (CoP – cessation of production) to completion.

Applications for the Call for Ideas are now closed.

Industry has reported recurring difficulties in recent and current decommissioning programmes resulting in low flexibility, lost time, cost overruns and inconvenience to offshore teams.

We’re looking for innovative ideas and concepts for a modular, environmentally friendly and cost-effective life support solution for decommissioning that will enable operators to have flexibility on the complete asset removal strategy, scope and timing.

The life support system must include:

  • power (with emissions control)
  • potable water
  • heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC)
  • fire and gas detection

Accommodation and personnel access may also be considered in the solution as these capabilities are often required during decommissioning.
