Working with operators, industry, government, academia, regulators and the community to create a sustainable approach to decommissioning in Australia.


We are working alongside Australia’s oil and gas producers to identify best practices and support their commitments to decommission their facilities safely and efficiently.


We are collaborating with businesses across the supply chain to help grow Australia’s decommissioning capability.


We are helping government identify job opportunities in remote and regional Australia and coordinate potential decommissioning hubs.


We are supporting the National Decommissioning Research Initiative (NDRI) to develop independent peer-reviewed research to better inform decommissioning decisions.
