As operator of some of Australia’s oldest oil and gas fields, Esso Australia is committed to decommissioning our Bass Strait offshore facilities safely and effectively.
We have substantial experience in safely and effectively decommissioning facilities to achieve positive outcomes across the globe, and we are excited to be part of Australia’s growing decommissioning industry.
In this edition of Connection you can read about how we are progressing through our decommissioning process and the options we have identified and are proposing for the for the final stage stages of our non-producing offshore platforms.
You can also review some spectacular video footage obtained through an offshore environmental survey which showcases the unique ecosystem and marine life teeming around our structures and get to know how our Decommissioning Manager, Richard Perry is applying his wealth of global knowledge to our Australian decommissioning operations.
As we continue to plan for decommissioning our non-producing facilities, we are working with relevant stakeholders to find solutions that balance environmental impacts and benefits with the needs of the community and regulatory requirements. Anyone interested in reviewing our current plans for steel piled jackets can access our Environmental Plan report and provide comment via NOPSEMA’s consultation hub.
We hope you enjoy this edition of Connection.
