Thank you for attending the 2023 SPE Workshop: Onshore Plugging and Abandonment.
Plan your attendance to other SPE events in your region or technical area.
Discussions in this workshop were focussed around ways to abandon wells on land “as cheap as possible, but no cheaper”.One of the biggest challenges for our industry is the large population of orphan wells that are awaiting proper abandonment. This is tightly linked to the increasing attention on methane emissions: these are quickly becoming critical for our social license to operate. We need to be able to identify high risk wells that will be difficult to abandon, and then deploy adequate technologies.
