Decommissioning and Field Abandonment
ICON has performed decommissioning and/or abandonment studies for clients on an on-going basis for more than 15 years. We have worked on the abandonment of fields we have helped initially install, so we have real life-cycle experience.

ICON recognises the importance to our clients of successful execution of these end-of-life activities. We also understand the importance of considering abandonment during Greenfield design. ICON has access to industry leading partners as needed, depending on the size and complexity of the project.
ICON applies the same innovative methodology in removing oilfield assets as it does in installing them. If possible, ICON will concurrently engineer the abandonment of wells with the removal of associated platforms to facilitate one cost-effective, integrated operation, instead of a staged one using multiple assets.
