About this Virtual Instructor Led Training (VILT) 

Decommissioning offshore Oil and Gas installations is an inevitable part of the ‘Life of Field’ activities. It carries a multi-billion dollar cost with no commercial return!  COVID 19 and low oil price has changed the world we know. For businesses to survive they must adapt to a changed working environment.  We are now in an era of continuous change as COVID 19, low oil price and globalization, pressures companies to be more productive and cost effective.

This Virtual Instructor Led Training (VILT) course has been specially adapted for live online training and discusses how best decommissioning projects can be effectively managed to meet the challenges of 2020 and beyond. This VILT course is essential to all those involved in decommissioning who need to be aware of their obligations and liabilities for decommissioning and how best to manage those such that opportunities can be realized, and overall costs reduced.

The VILT course will provide delegates with a comprehensive understanding of all aspects of offshore decommissioning from late life operations, through to planning, estimating, preparation, execution and close out.

*Training will be delivered in 4 hours per day, with 2 breaks lasting 10 minutes each.

After graduating as a mechanical engineer in 1977, your expert course leader commenced his career in the oil & gas industry as a mud logger data engineer for ultra-deep onshore wells in Europe. In 1979, he joined offshore construction company, Heerema Marine
Contractors, as field engineer. As Field Engineer, he was involved in more than 65 offshore installation projects, and as Consultant / Superintendant, he was involved in almost every North Sea decommissioning project and worldwide in more than 175 decommissioning projects.

He has over 35 years of hands-on offshore engineering and project management experience in drilling, offshore transport and installation work. Since 1990, he has specialised in decommissioning projects. In the early days of platform decommissioning, he researched and developed innovative subsea cutting tools, offshore installation and decommissioning techniques and platform decontamination methods. Since 2011, as Technical Advisor to the Lenders (Mortgagee in Possession), he was involved in repossessing assets such as the repossession of the Platform Etesco Millenium, FPSO OSX 2, and a Deep DP Drilling Vessel in Brazil.

In an effort to change the “mind set” about decommissioning, he co-organised 4 international conferences in Aberdeen, Petten and Den Helder on the subject of “Decommissioning & Re-using of Platform Facilities” and presented several papers on the subject of decommissioning, subsea cutting and re-use of platforms. In 1994, he took the initiative to develop the platform re-use software (now called an App) and has participated in the development of the project since that time.

His HSE performance to date is: NO Lost Time Incidents on any project.
