Over 50 join webinar on decommissioning, restoration

Over 50 participants comprising Institution of Surveyors, Engineers and Architects (PUJA) Brunei members, Brunei Shell Petroleum Company Sdn Bhd (BSP) and public sector staff attended a webinar entitled ‘Decommissioning & Restoration (D&R): Technology Deployment’ organised by PUJA Academy Sdn Bhd (PASB) in collaboration with BSP.

Speaker BSP decommissioning and restoration Manager Haji Idris bin Haji Mohd Jaafar highlighted the Decommissioning and Restoration process in the oil and gas industry, where facilities reach the end of their lives. A growing number of oil and gas platform and facilities are ageing and their economically recoverable reserves offshore extracted, therefore an increase of decommissioning will be expected in the coming years.

Haji Idris said every decommissioning project is different and needs to be tailored to the facility design, local context and local legislation requirements.

The presentation also aimed to provide an insight on D&R from a Global Shell and BSP perspective followed by elaboration of the current and new technology that BSP deploys particularly in the areas of subsurface and wells plug and abandonment activity under the D&R team’s scope of work.

Haji Idris is a professional senior manager in an upstream industry with over 32 years of experience in Shell.

He has managed many large multiple projects previously and gained experience and skills across whole upstream value chain from various assignments within the company.

He is now accountable for the BSP Asset Decommissioning and Restoration Programme with the goal to reduce very large liability in a safe and efficient manner within the country regulation and in step with societal expectations.

PUJA Academy actively offers virtual webinars and courses to improve the competency of (PUJA) members and the construction industry, with its mission to ‘Promoting Awareness, Improving Knowledge and Enhancing Experience’.
