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.

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.

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".

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

Fascinating.

Amazing...
Simon Loo
how many years old are these rigs already?
Jay Yoo
Modern technology has consideration how to decommission it.
Putra Adhiguna
Fascinating technology. Irony to see different sets of standards on differing host countries...

I just cut the cheese

You put the platforms there you pay to remove them. Simple. Every bit of concrete sorry old chums.

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.

Fantastic.
