Decommissioning the Brent Field

The Brent oil and gas field, lying north-east of the Shetland Islands, has been a cornerstone of the UK’s hugely successful oil and gas industry for 40 years. It has created and sustained thousands of jobs, contributed billions of pounds in tax revenues, and provided the UK with a substantial amount of its oil and gas. Now, after many years of service to the UK, the Brent field is reaching the stage where almost all the available reserves of oil and gas have been retrieved. The next step in the lifecycle is to retire or ‘decommission’ the Brent field’s four platforms and their related infrastructure. This will be a complex, major engineering project and will take over ten years to complete. Accessibility transcript: /> Welcome to Shell’s official YouTube channel.

Blast the concrete to a pile of rubble. They said most of the oil is already out. Not a real environmental problem. The pile of rubble is now an artificial reaf.
Problem for decommissioning completly the concrete gravity part. 1) Under bottom of the platform there are Skirt penetrations! 2) Concrete with synthetic additive were injected betwind see bed and bottom of plateform (Graouting). 3) To flush the oil on top of cells doesn't look difficult. Just install a B.O.P On top of each cell and, drill through and pump. i was a member of the engineering team for Brent "C" And Cormoran "A".

Fascinating technology. Irony to see different sets of standards on differing host countries...

Modern technology has consideration how to decommission it.

You need to start refunding people for all the bad gas we buy

Why can't you just leave it what is it bothering may need it for something else one day

Decom. The soon to boom industry that few dare to speak of . A very informative video .  Lets get our redundant engineers working  again and make Aberdeen the Decom centre of excellence for a global industry

Impressive project. Just wondering the costs involved....Any thoughts?

Still very sad I know a lot of boys who teared up at this

It was good to see Peterhead and Aberdeen again since my graduate and postgraduate studies studies in RGU, Aberdeen. The decommissioning process is novel in many respects and I believe Shell would carry this out responsibily.

All i have to say is What an amazing marble of engineering these rigs are in the middle of the ocean...simply amaaaaazzzing..
Simon Loo
how many years old are these rigs already?

Wow. This is a very smooth piece of *propaganda* from Shell. You could almost believe this was a piece of journalism. It's unfortunate because I'm sure a lot of dumb people have been fooled.
sick animation.
