Decommissioning is a process consisting of the removal of oil and gas installations and any relevant accompanying structures that have come to the end of their productive life.

According to the Oil & Gas UK’s Decommissioning Report, the costs necessary to meet decommissioning liabilities in the United Kingdom Continental Shelf from 2013 to 2040 were estimated to be around £31.5bn, with £10.4bn being the total forecast expenditure from 2016 to 2025. As many as 475 productive facilities, 10.000 km of gas and oil pipelines, 15 oil terminals and 5000 wells are said to be decommissioned in the next 30 years.
