Introduction

This course is an intermediate skill level course. This interactive skill course focus on the technic and methodology which regulator and operator used to deploy and determine the decommissioning decision. This course will focus on the understanding the driver of decommissioning including technical commercial law that govern decommissioning that will influence the decision of decommissioning. The course will conduct an interactive workshop to provide a detail understanding and capability to undertake a DOA.  

Objectives

Upon completion of this course, participants will be able:
  • Provide participants with an overview of decommissioning activities and its various technical / commercial alternatives
  • Provide participants with an overview of the driver of the decommissioning and the decommissioning options available in industry
  • Provide participants with insight on the driver of decommissioning including technical commercial law that govern decommissioning and its importance
  • Provide a detail understanding and capability to undertake a DOA through interactive and hand-on workshop session
     

Trainers

Assoc. Prof. Dr. Noor Amila Wan Abdullah Zawawi, is currently the Director of the Institute of Sustainable Building (ISB) at Universiti Teknologi PETRONAS (UTP). She is currently leading research on decommissioning of offshore platform at the Offshore Engineering Centre, UTP, and under the ISB, she is focusing on construction management and sustainability, i.e. low carbon and green building initiatives at the Center for Urban Resources (CUReS). She provides numerous training on decommissioning to the industry in Malaysia, South Korea and Netherlands, working closely with various industry/university. She works with non-profit organisations and NGOs i.e. Malaysia Structural Steel Association (MSSA) and MOGSC. Since 2015, she has been appointed as Chairperson for Rigs.volution Working Group in MSSA (a joint initiative between UTP - MSSA – CIDB), and Council Member for MSSA since 2017. She is active in SPE Decommissioning events. She is listed in the National Industry Expert Directory as a Panel member for the National Occupational Skills Standard (NOSS) for Oil & Gas, by the Department of Skills Development, Ministry of Human Resources Malaysia. Dr Amila has published over 70 articles on her research findings, and passionately championed development of local capability in decommissioning. She has been invited as speakers on decommissioning at local and international engagements since 2013. She obtained her MSc and PhD from Malaysia in Building Engineering and Built Environment.   Prof. Mohd Shahir Liew, Ph.D P.E. (Texas), P.Eng. (Mal.), C.Eng. FEI UK, has been practicing in the construction and offshore industry for 23 years, he is now the Deputy Vice Chancellor Research and Innovation (DVCRI) at Universiti Teknologi PETRONAS (UTP), Malaysia in charge of the business development portfolio and catalyzing the research ecosystem for accelerated growth. Professor Shahir aspires for a better tomorrow in Malaysia through the approach of sustained growth in niche capabilities and high-end knowledge areas. He believes that these are crucial for the country to reach developed nation status and strongly advocates for the scientific and engineering community to always add cutting edge dimensions to their set of capabilities and competencies. Professor Shahir throughout his career has spearheaded several strategic initiatives in the area of competency development including being one of the pioneering groups in Malaysia to develop wind engineering competencies and was the Chairman of the National Standards MS1553 Wind Code in 1999. In this time in the Malaysian Oil and Gas Services Council (MOGSC), he has served as the Chairman of the Competency and Training Working Group identifying critical industry gaps in the oil and gas industry. His continued service as the Honourary Secretary has also seen his leading participation in the Human Resources Development Fund (HRDF) for the National Occupational Skill Standard  (NOSS) and Sectorial Training Committee (STC-17). He is also the current Fellow of the Energy Institute Malaysia and is closely overlooking the development of niche professional accreditation tracks in Malaysia for engineers in the energy sector. Professor Shahir graduated summe cum laude in Civil Engineering from Texas Tech University (USA) in 1983 and subsequently fast-tracked towards the completion of his Ph.D in Civil Engineering in 1988 from the same alma mater.   Ir. Lim Eu Shawn, P. Eng., C.Eng. MEI UK, obtained his BSc. (Hons) in Civil Engineering from Universiti Teknologi PETRONAS (UTP), Malaysia in the areas of offshore engineering with particular emphasis on metocean, seismic engineering, offshore design, decommisioning and asset integrity. He is currently providing active support for research and consultancy works of the Offshore Engineering Centre, UTP (OECU) while pursuing his doctorate studies in UTP. He actively engages with various major oil and gas corporations on research and consultancy works to identify value optimizations in their design and operations.  In addition he is now supporting the development and deployment of technologies in the industry through partnership, collaboration and commercialization initiatives. He also engages in active competency building and training in the offshore engineering industry and has previously engaged in training programmes via Malaysian Structural Steel Association (MSSA) and Human Resources Development Fund (HRDF). He represents MSSA in the development of national offshore structures code MS ISO 19901/2 and is a Chartered Engineer of Energy Institute. He is also an accredited trainer recognized by the HRDF. He actively seeks collaboration opportunities within the oil and gas fraternity through value enhancement and innovation of technologies via university-industry partnership models.
