BEIS records show that three Decommissioning programmes were approved in the year 2016 listing 76 wells to be decommissioned in the UKCS and in 2017 eight decommissioning programmes were approved listing 55 wells to be decommissioned. We do not have this information broken down into those which are (a) subsea and (b) platform wells.
