The Operators Decommissioning Technical Group (ODTG) has identified that the operator community would value from a set of cost benchmarks to assist in developing performance metrics for decommissioning across the Work Breakdown Structure. This TFG has been formed to develop a mechanism for compiling such cost benchmarks within OGUK.
Reporting to the DOTG, the Decommissioning Benchmarking Task finish group’s objectives are as follows:
• Develop a business case and methodology for developing a benchmarking process under the ODTG.
• Once the business case is accepted by the ODTG, it is anticipated that OGUK on behalf of the TFG will conduct the following:
o Gather data from Operators for benchmarking – starting with wells data
o Initially develop benchmarking and reporting approach for wells data
o Share outputs with ODTG
• Develop and agree a basis under which the outcomes from the TFG will be shared with industry
• Determine steps to develop benchmarks for other WBS elements (e.g. removals, subsea, post CoP OPEX etc…)
