Xodus Delivers Tunisian Decommissioning Study

Xodus Group has delivered a decommissioning and abandonment study for wells, surface and subsea facilities in Tunisia on behalf of Thyna Petroleum Services (TPS).

As part of the study, Xodus developed a decommissioning cost estimate for four onshore fields, one offshore field and two onshore storage and processing sites. The six-week study provided a risk and opportunities assessment and reviewed regulatory and environmental aspects for facility and infrastructure removal.

The scope of work also included the creation of an asset register, the development of an abandonment strategy and site remediation in line with current industry best practice and in-country regulations.

“The study achieved the objectives it was set out and the Xodus’ project team was successful in applying its deep understanding of decommissioning to inform the JV partners the key drivers that can materially impact the overall decommissioning cost and schedule,” Nizar Taga, finance manager of TPS, said in a company statement.

“Xodus highlighted the risks and mitigation strategies that, if implemented, would reduce several of the inherent uncertainties associated with decommissioning a multi-asset field,” Taga added.
