We actively transfer our expertise to our clients, fostering in-house decommissioning capabilities, and ensuring effective project execution and long-term success.
RESL boasts deep expertise in executing subsea decommissioning, seamlessly integrating such operations within larger project frameworks or as standalone endeavors.
For over 15 years, RESL has actively participated in ship recycling, commencing with ARO studies focused on disposal routes for assets like large Semi Submersibles, FPSOs, and FSOs. Our scope has broadened to encompass waste disposal management and meticulous shipyard inspections, ensuring sustainable and responsible recycling practices.
RESL, a pioneer in offshore decommissioning standards, collaborates with organizations like ASCOPE to develop flexible and balanced regional decommissioning guidelines.
RESL is a Specialist Consultancy with over 30 years' Experience solely focusing on Decommissioning of Facilities, Pipelines and Wells – Onshore, Offshore and Subsea.
RESL offers extensive expertise in well abandonment across the globe, including North Sea, U.S., South East Asia, Australia, West Africa, and Brazil. Our experienced team handles onshore and offshore well abandonment using various methods, from traditional drilling rigs to innovative tooling, ensuring cost-effectiveness and risk reduction
RESL has experience decommissioning of both onshore and offshore pipelines, including removal, abandonment and burial.
This involves dealing with restricted access, noise abatement, relations with the local community and subsequent ground remediation uniquely posed by onshore locations, We work closely with the client’s team to identify the project specific issues, and then develop acceptable solutions minimising cost without compromising operational safety, or the quality of environmental controls..
With decades of hands-on experience, our team possesses the knowledge and skills required to safely and efficiently decommission ships and floating platforms. We understand the unique complexities that come with these projects, and our proven track record speaks volumes about our capabilities. Our environmentally conscious approach ensures that materials are recycled and disposed of responsibly, minimizing the environmental impact while maximizing resource recovery.
Data collection forms the foundation of wind energy projects, aiding engineers in understanding operational dynamics. Deconstructing wind turbines and components reveals strengths and areas for improvement, driving innovation. This process also optimizes maintenance strategies, reducing downtime, and ensuring long-term success. In summary, Reverse engineering plays a pivotal role in advancing wind energy technology, optimizing performance, and promoting industry competitiveness.

Dr. Brian G. Twomey, Principal Consultant & Managing Director, oversees decommissioning operations, engineering, peer reviews, and cost analysis with 35+ years of experience. He's conducted decommissioning work on offshore installations worldwide across all continents. Dr. Twomey has presented 100+ papers on decommissioning and delivered extensive training courses.
Steven Coombs, Principal Consultant and Operations Director, is a seasoned Petroleum Engineer with 37 years of expertise spanning reservoir, production, drilling, operations, cost estimation, and project management. He's contributed to decommissioning projects worldwide. Additionally, Steve excels in developing probabilistic models for cost estimating and oil and gas projects.
Jessica Courtoreille, HSE Manager, has a wide ranging experience in development, operational and decommissioning in the oil and gas, transport and mineral extraction industries. A key skill in all of these has been communication and interaction with a variety of people and the development of trust relationships with Regulatory bodies and key stakeholders to facilitate the achievement of company requirements.
RESL's involvement bought an innovative approach to the technical, commercial and strategic elements of the analysis and their deliverables were supplied to a high quality, on-schedule and within budget. I can confirm that Haliburton was very satisfied with the service supplied and the resultant outcome.
The RESL report was excellent in evaluating a proceedure in reducing our overall cost for the decommisioning these three platforms. The key to the cost reduction was the development of a more efficent well abandonment process along with resourceing local equipment and better utilization of contractors wrapped within a detailed management plan. Our company would highly recommend them to anyone that requires their expertise.
