  • 2. PRE-ORDER BEFORE FEB 17 SAVE Context of the Offshore Decommissioning Report 2012-2013 $450 The decommissioning market was certainly a busy one in 2011. The lack of severe hurricanes in the 2011 season minimized the number of evacuations and consequent interruption to offshore operations. In addition, weather downtime, although erratic early on, was minimal particularly from June through September. This made contracting simpler and enabled many operators to select lump sum with an option on downtime due to a named storm. Given the lack of named storms that entered the Gulf of Mexico (GOM), this strategy has proved cost effective. Technology has advanced compared with previous years and tooling has become more reliable, enabling ef cient turnaround on salvage projects. The cost of decommissioning platforms was kept down by a few operators undertaking campaigns as part of their business strategy. More regulation was enacted through 2011, resulting in much more oversight by the US government on the Outer Continental Shelf (OCS) oil and gas operations. Gulf of Mexico Oil & Gas Decommissioning Market Report 2012-13 The aim of these new regulations is to hold operators accountable for safety and the environment, with tougher civil penalties for violations. Operators must Analysis of the decommissioning market in 2011, forecasted demand and best practice to improve your business planning, reduce cost and optimize your resources. now demonstrate active procedures and processes in place for safety and the environment, covering a broad range of offshore activities. These regulations stem from – or have been accelerated by – the Deepwater Horizon incident of April 2010 and are primarily targeted at drilling operations; however, they apply to all oil and gas operations in the GOM OCS. Compliance with regulatory requirements is now mandatory and operators must demonstrate this for all OCS oil and gas operations via documentation, hazard analysis and job safety analysis. Although many operators followed the guidance of API RP 75, it was not mandatory. Additional regulations have been enacted that provide far greater detail on what is expected of oil and gas operators. The 2012 decommissioning report will examine in detail the context of the new regulations and their effect on the decommissioning industry in the GOM. In addition, the decommissioning market in 2011 will be discussed and how this compares with predictions from 2010. Predictions for 2012 and 2013 will be based on performance in 2012 and prior years, and compliance with the ‘Idle Iron’ NTL. Who should buy this report?

  • 3. PRE-ORDER BEFORE FEB 17Chapter Overview and Research Highlights SAVE1 Market overview $450 The predictions for 2011 reviewed A consideration of the volume of decommissioning activities predicted in the GOM 2011 report and what has subsequently affected these levels. This includes how operator’s proactive decommissioning campaigns were made possible by the reduced level of hurricane activity in the region over the past two years. 2011 Market reviewed Analysis of the level of decommissioning undertaken, including a consideration of the factors behind operators decommissioning the highest number of platforms than any other year.2 2011 Market in Detail In-depth look at the decommissioning market in 2011 covering detailed analysis of what was decommissioned and how operators improved on previous year’s performance. Primary research undertaken through surveying contractors in the region to provide a thorough overview of the market. Beyond 2011 predictions 2011 was certainly a busy year for decommissioning activity with the number of platforms salvaged far in excess of predictions from 2010. Operators have continued to decommission platforms at an increased rate compared to previous years with Apache Corporation alone decommissioning over 60 platforms in 2010. The active use of a functioning SIM system has enabled a number of operators to develop decommissioning strategies and concentrate resources utilizing decommissioning campaigns in addition to decommissioning platforms that present high to very high risk.3 New technologies Technologies in the industry are continually being re ned with an enduring focus on improving engineering techniques to increase reliability. Additionally, there are a number of areas where new technologies are being tested but yet to be proven on a GOM OCS project. These could have a signi cant impact on the ef ciencies of decommissioning in the years ahead.4 Efficiency / Resource Average platform decommissioning durations Water Average Duration to Discussion on how operators and contractors have utilized Platform Type Depth (ft) Decommission (d) ef ciencies to undertake a greater number of salvage projects Caisson 50 1-2 compared to previous years.

  • 4. PRE-ORDER BEFORE FEB 17 SAVE8 Market Challenges / Regulations From November 15th all operators shall have a fully implemented Safety and Environmental Management System $450 (SEMS) that will follow the guidance of API RP 75. In this chapter, the changes in the regulatory landscape are considered and the impact on decommissioning in the region. SEMS What is SEMS? The SEMS requirement affects practically all-offshore operations from drilling activities to lifting point certi cation. In this chapter, the impact on your decommissioning activities, including cost reduction, personnel safety and the environment are discussed in more detail SEMs To ensure their compliance operators are requiring contractors to provide documentation and evidence for satisfying key areas of the SEMS such as safety and environmental performance with written safe work practices. Directly SEMS is requiring all contractors to have “Operating Procedures” and a “Mechanical Integrity Plan” that accompany all supplied equipment in addition to a “Hazard Analysis”. Contractors may adopt sections from an operators SEMS program but the operator and contractor must document agreed policies. SIMS API 2SIM is imminently due to be issued as guidance for the implementation of a Structural Integrity Management system. BOEM have stated greater oversight of operators and use of a SIM system to not only manage a eet of platforms but also to implement decommissioning strategy as part of the SIM system.9 Industry Learnings A concise, considered summary of the industry as 2012 begins, including SIM and API 2SIM, and their impact and in uence on decommissioning strategies.10 Reefing A brief look at 2011 ree ng projects by operator, asset type and water depth. Comparison to ree ng trends in previous years and predictions for 2012. 23.3% of all reefed platforms are located in a water depth between 150 – 200 metres The second most commonly reefed structure is an 8-pile Jacket, with 100 structures reefed by December 2011. In 2009, 2010 and 2011at least 25 structures reefed each year11 References Methodology The 2012 decommissioning report has utilized contractors in the decommissioning market and their extensive research, experience and expertise from observations on market performance, dif culties operators and contractors to generate a concise in performing the work and establishing base line picture of the decommissioning market in the GOM performance.
