Oil and Gas UK updates well abandonment guidelines

21/07/2015

New guidelines have been set by Oil and Gas UK for well abandonment in a bid to increase cross-industry understanding of issues surrounding the process. The industry body has made the move in a bid to continue improving safety and performance across the UKCS (UK Continental Shelf). The first guidelines were set just over 20 years ago with input from member companies and stakeholders.
