Connect with the businesses and organisations seeking a better understanding of decommissioning oil and gas infrastructure and the potential impact of contaminants on marine life.
The decommissioning of oil and gas structures in the Australian marine environment has been a topic of increasing concern in recent years. Researchers and industry are striving to gain a better understanding of the potential impact of contaminants on marine life. This research can provide real data to support decisions around whether decommissioned infrastructure needs to be completely removed (as the legislation currently stands).
Some research has suggested the subsea infrastructure may be beneficial and act as an artificial reef. The removal of these structures can actually have significant impacts on the marine ecosystem, including the loss of habitat and potential harm to marine life.
ANSTO has conducted extensive research on the impacts of decommissioning offshore oil and gas platforms.
Join this discussion exploring the environmental impacts of decommissioning oil and gas structures and how organisations can collaborate to ensure that the process is carried out in an environmentally responsible manner and with minimal cost.
