Decommissioning the Deimos Subsea Field with Development in Mind
Bryan Coward, Subsea Engineer; Shell
In 2016, Shell decommissioned the Deimos Subsea Field with an eye towards cost optimization and preservation for future tiebacks.
Utilizing methods not normally associated with abandonment, the team was able to collect flowline integrity data and retain future
utility, all while efficiently decommissioning the system at low cost. This presentation centers around the techniques and decisions
made to deliver long-term value from a deepwater decommissioning project in the Gulf of Mexico.

Challenge of Positive Integrity Verification in Inaccessible Areas
Caleb Wells, Shell Subsea Engineer; Shell Exploration & Production Company
Shell identified an area of external corrosion on two risers inside J-Tubes on a high GOR subsea tieback that could not be inspected
by existing UT equipment. Shell worked with vendors to develop three serial number one devices for the J-Tube window cutting, riser
wall thickness measurement in a tight annulus, and Splashtron removal, in order to prove that the system had sufficient remaining wall
thickness to continue operating. This presentation will discuss the integrity verification process.
