This Conference will emphasize the importance of relevant experimental R&D for ensured well integrity and P&A related cost reductions. It will provide an update on state-of-the-art research results and available infrastructure for technology validation. It will bring a wider international perspective by understanding P&A (Plug and Abandonment) in the context of the North Sea.

The main topics for the conference are:

  • Ensuring plug integrity
  • Formation as a barrier
  • Pipe removal
  • Barrier verification

Adjacent to the conference, there will be an educational session: SINTEF P&A School. Experienced scientists will provide a wide introduction to the topic of P&A relevant for the petroleum sector. Personnel at all levels can here get a useful overview.

- Today all wells plugs in the same way, and it is not necessarily the most effective way. For example, not all production wells need to be plugged in the same manner.  There is also much to gain economically by moving tasks from the rig to the lighter vessels, says senior scientist in SINTEF Petroleum, Malin Torsæter. (Video: SINTEF / Ingvil Snøfugl)
