UK North Sea to dominate global decommissioning spend over next five years
The UK is poised to lead the way as operators increase spending on North Sea decommissioning work amid low oil prices, according to a new report.
Independent research company Rystad Energy has predicted Britain is in line for nearly 80% of the £14billion it estimates could be spent on removal projects in north-west Europe over the next five years.
The researchers said that, with exploration and production budgets slashed since the Covid-19 pandemic took hold and sent oil prices tumbling and few profitable investment alternatives, operators are now likely to increase spending on decommissioning projects.
Rystad estimates the value for the market world-wide may reach £34.5billion by 2024.
The report added that, with an average asset age of 25 years, the north-west European decommissioning sector could grow 20% in annual commitments over the next 18 months if the current low oil prices do not show signs of substantial recovery soon.
