SPE Symposium: Decommissioning & Abandonment 2019

Asia is set to increase its decommissioning activities as more fields are reaching the end of their economic life in the years to come. With limited experience, increased complexity and the involvement of multiple stakeholders, the implementation of an effective decommissioning and abandonment plan requires thorough verification, extensive collaboration and detailed planning.

The second edition of the SPE Symposium: Decommissioning and Abandonment will be held from 3–4 December 2019 in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. The Symposium continues to be the platform for local and regional industry leaders, stakeholders and subject matter experts to share challenges and lessons learnt.

The programme will feature case studies including those from mature markets, and focus on what can be done in the region to keep both the integrity of the environment and the decommissioning journey in a safe, efficient and effective manner.

Share your knowledge and experience by submitting your paper proposal by 3 June 2019.
