Developing a collaborative and sustainable Decommissioning industry for Australia.

CODA is supporting the creation of a collaborative and sustainable decommissioning industry with the capability and capacity to address the challenges and opportunities of decommissioning Australia’s aging oil and gas infrastructure.

About CODA

The Centre of Decommissioning Australia (CODA) is an independent organisation that works with industry, government and the community to create a collaborative and sustainable approach to decommissioning Australia’s aging oil and gas infrastructure.

There is more than USD $40 billion of necessary decommissioning work to be done on Australia’s offshore oil and gas infrastructure, over half of which needs to be started within the next ten years.

Decommissioning represents a multi-generational challenge for Australia. CODA will play a critical role in transforming our country’s approach to late life planning and decommissioning to maximise the value for Australia.

In collaboration with industry partners, CODA has commissioned a series of studies to accelerate cross-industry understanding of Australia's decommissioning challenge. The studies will establish a foundational understanding of opportunities for collaboration, innovation, and efficiency in decommissioning that support CODA's objectives.
