Mintra – a member of Oil & Gas UK and long-standing partner of the energy sector – will demonstrate how it can support decommissioning activities in the North Sea at a key industry event taking place next week. The company will be exhibiting at OGUK’s Decommissioning Conference on November 23 and 24 and will be meeting attendees through a virtual booth for the duration of the two-day event.
The event will be both in-person and online, with a varied programme looking at the current state and future outlook for decommissioning. Key presentations will be made by OGUK, the Oil and Gas Authority and The Robert Gordon University, which will discuss the journey to net zero and the future skills and capabilities the North Sea will need as assets are removed and new energy projects are delivered.
Mintra is promoting a suite of six decommissioning eLearning courses, previously developed in partnership with Amec Foster Wheeler. Targeted at the unique and extensive activities involved at the end of field life, the courses provide the essential knowledge and change in mindset to appreciate the fundamentals of decommissioning.
The suite caters for anyone connected to or with an interest in decommissioning, including operators, contractors, regulators, NGOs and the financial services sector. The content is suitable for the international market and the decommissioning activities planned or underway in the UKCS, Norway, Gulf of Mexico and Australia.
Mintra’s six decommissioning courses start with an awareness level Introduction to Decommissioning (30mins) covering influences in the decommissioning process, types of installation decommissioned and the key phases in a programme.
The other titles in the range are pitched at a more detailed level of understanding:
“Many other decom courses overlook the myriad of legal complexities and environmental regulations. We covered these off with clear guidance on the variances and where to source the latest data. The advantages of planning from an early stage is another area that is unique to our decom range,” said Kevin Short, Mintra CEO
