18 April, Aberdeen Exhibition and Conference Centre AB23 8BL At this popular bi-annual event, UK Oil & Gas and DECC will provide an overview of the abandonment (and suspension) of wells, including current updates on UK & Norwegian regulations. Case studies and specific challenges will also be outlined by a range of operators and service providers from the UK and Norway, under the following headings:

• The Brent experience: considerations for a successful plug and abandonment (P&A) campaign

• Statoil TOGI subsea P&A project • Zonal isolation:well barriers and assurance on BP’s North Sea abandonments

• Incorporating abandonment /suspension into thewell design

• Rigless – cutting the cost ofwell abandonments • Platformbasedwell abandonment withHWOunit • P&A of subsea completedwells – can this be done from a mono- hull vessel?

• P&A cementing technology: reliable long-termisolation • Developments in non-traditional plug and abandonment methods.

A number of brief Technology Focus presentations will also be made during the event.

Seminar Chair Graeme Rae, of Talisman Energy, says: “The Seminar is a great networking opportunity and helps drilling, completions, project, well integrity, environmental and commercial personnel to gain a deeper insight into the challenges and solutions in well abandonment and suspension. The accompanying exhibition enables companies to showcase their capabilities.”
