SPE WA 2021/22 SEASON OPENING – “CODA: Leading the Collaboration to Solve Australia’s Decommissioning Challenge via Best Practices & Innovative Technologies”

September 29, 2021 @ 4:45 pm - 7:30 pm

$40.00 – $70.00

Society of Petroleum Engineers Western Australia is proud to present the details of our Season Opening Technical Meeting in September.

About the Presentation

NERA established the Centre Of Decommissioning Australia (CODA) in early 2021 in collaboration with the industry. CODA has been set up to work across the entire decommissioning value chain, assisting operators to identify and access new technologies and global best practices, providing the service sector with visibility of the upcoming scale and timing of potential decommissioning activity and supporting the efforts of governments in enabling local execution of work.

The Australian decommissioning journey is still in its infancy. We have the opportunity to learn from others experiences and set ourselves up for the best possible outcomes. CODA’s vision is for Australia to be undertaking world-class decommissioning activities, using global best practices and technologies to execute work safely and with the maximum of removed equipment being recycled as possible.
