Efficient and timely remediation of retiring oil and gas assets is an issue that has been talked about a lot in recent years. How the industry handles land management is a prime opportunity to not only demonstrate our commitment to ESG, but also to showcase technology and skills development, and business innovation.
The Novel Land and Wellsite Remediation working group is focused on developing solutions for land management and the retirement of inactive oil and gas assets that involve:
Accelerating timelines to closure
Ensuring sustainability in the methods selected for environmental management
Developing fit-for-purpose technologies and novel approaches
Solutions that support liability management and strategic planning of closure activities
Onsite or offsite remediation solutions
Advanced data gathering and analytical techniques
Digital technologies that underpin the objectives of this technology focus area
