“Around the world, after stopping production, all offshore installations have to be removed, reused or disposed, depending on the regulation of the area in which they were operating. This phenomenon is called decommissioning. “
There are over 600 offshore oil and gas installations in the North Sea, 470 of which are in UK waters. These include sub-sea equipment fixed to the ocean floor as well as platforms ranging from the smaller structures in the Southern North Sea (similar in size to Big Ben) to the enormous concrete or steel structures as big as the Eiffel Tower and much heavier in the Northern North Sea.
