Commenting on news that Well Safe has been awarded a contract to decommission up to twenty-one wells on the Schooner and Ketch fields in the UKCS, operated by DNO North Sea (ROGB) Limited, a wholly owned subsidiary of DNO ASA,  OGUK Decommissioning Manager Joe Leask said:

“OGUK’s Decommissioning Insight 2018 shows there are 1,465 wells to plug in the UK Continental Shelf over the next decade. There’s a number of new companies entering the decommissioning market offering innovative commercial models enabling efficiencies and it’s great to see that Well Safe are realising these opportunities.

“The UK will be the largest market for decommissioning spend over the next decade, and Well Safe’s pioneering approach will further help the UK industry establish an advantage in an emerging global market.”
