About the project


This report summarises the uncertainties, opportunities and issues that stakeholders have identified about decommissioning practice, and about applying the full range of decommissioning options in addition to the status quo: full removal. The report also provides the priority science questions that need to be answered to allow informed and efficient consideration of the full range of decommissioning options.

Locations included all Western Australian state and Commonwealth waters with a focus on the North West and west coast, the Timor Sea, and a secondary focus on the south coast/Great Australian Bight. The water area under consideration was from the high water mark out to Australia’s Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ) or 200 nautical miles from the baseline
