Accelerate the development of your Rigless P&A Technology

NZTC’s Well Decommissioning Collaboration initiative is accelerating the pace at which well decommissioning technology is qualified and commercialised to reach industry targets of 10% cost reduction in well decommissioning by 2028 and 50% emissions reduction by 2030.

The multi-operator initiative is already providing industry with access to new technologies, additional data collection from other operators, and reduced investment risk.

As part of the initiative, we are seeking technology solutions that have the potential to allow rigless plug and abandonment (P&A).

Successful applicants will have the potential to join the initiative for support in developing, trialling and testing their solutions, gaining exposure to industry-leading operators Harbour Energy, ConocoPhillips, Respol, TotalEnergies and Petrobras.
