Emerging trends and technologies

The 6th edition of the SPE Symposium: Decommissioning and Abandonment is scheduled to be held on 3 – 4 December 2024 in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. 

Amidst the global transition towards cleaner energy, repurposing oil and gas infrastructure promotes sustainability and cost-efficiency. Although the challenges of decommissioning and abandonment are formidable, adopting a holistic, sustainable, and collaborative approach enables us to envision and create a future where trust, credibility, and environmental responsibility take centre stage. 

These endeavours are costly and traditionally lack revenue generation, yet they are vital for mitigating health and environmental risks. Emerging trends and technologies are applied to optimise costs, manage risks, and ensure regulatory compliance. 

Topics and discussions at the symposium will encompass policies, regulations, offshore and onshore decommissioning, cost optimisation, and best practices. Despite challenges, collaborative efforts have the potential to spur innovation, promote sustainability, and drive responsible energy practices in Asia Pacific and globally.
