The North Sea Transition Authority is committed to ensuring the economic recovery of UK oil and gas and to enabling the achievement of the UK Government’s commitment to reach net zero emissions by 2050.
In August 2022, the NSTA published a new cost estimate for offshore oil and gas decommissioning in the UK Continental Shelf (UKCS).
Repurposing offshore oil and gas infrastructure can reduce waste and accelerate energy transition.
The North Sea Transition Authority is the competent authority for all onshore and offshore well activity including well decommissioning.
Decommissioning of the UK’s offshore oil and gas production facilities is a major industrial challenge which can create global competitive advantage for the UK.
