07-Oct-2020

By: The Pipeline

​When it’s time to begin the process of decommissioning an offshore oil and gas platform, there are many factors to keep in mind. For example, the age and location of the structure, as well as its history and any unique features may need to be considered. And then there are always unknown potential hazards that may arise while work is underway.

How Doing Things the Hard Way Led Danos to a Better Solution
