Decommissioning & Abandonment Summit, Houston 2016

The 8th Annual Decommissioning & Abandonment Summit, is taking place currently (23-25 February 2016) in Houston, Texas ( Whilst not attending the conference in person, Dr Victoria Todd has put together a video that discusses OSC’s 12-year on-going research program on marine mammals and decommissioning in the North Sea. Subsea structures host marine communities, and are as such attractive foraging grounds for marine mammals, which is demonstrated through OSC’s acoustic research which has indicated that harbour porpoises (Phocoena phocoena) are feeding around Oil and Gas rigs and platforms in the North Sea.

A list of OSC’s publications relating to this research is available on the publications page,, and the video is available to watch here.
