The UKCS Decommissioning Strategy has been prepared and will be published by the Oil and Gas Authority (OGA) shortly. The OGA is working through the Decommissioning, Supply Chain and Exports, and Technology Boards to ensure that the UK industry is ready and capable to undertake and safely deliver decommissioning of the UKCS.
