The Norwegian Petroleum Society (NPF) has great pleasure in inviting you to the 18th NPF North Sea Decommissioning Conference. Welcome to Scandic Holmenkollen Park in Oslo, the 5-7 February 2018.

The conference will aim to shed light on the effect of the current oil-price environment on the decommissioning market. The programme committee has established a varied program covering the entire decommissioning process for wells and facilities. It also addresses market outlook, project lessons learnt and current and future challenges in the decommissioning industry. 
The main conference commences on Tuesday morning however we recommend joining in on the Monday evening to enjoy an “appetizer” presentation and to explore the facilities of the Scandic Holmenkollen Park Hotel.

We hope that you’ll find the programme interesting and that your participation at the conference will enhance your knowledge and your business opportunities within decommissioning.
