Brent Field Decommissioning
The Brent oil and gas field, lying north east of the Shetland Islands, has been a cornerstone of the UK’s hugely successful oil and gas industry. The next step in the life cycle is to decommission the Brent field’s four platforms and their related infrastructure.
Now, after many years of service to the UK economy, the Brent field is depleting, reaching the stage where production is no longer economically viable. Decommissioning of the Brent field will be conducted over the coming decade. It follows the decommissioning of other operators’ fields in the North Sea.
