Abstract A study was carried out to identify research needs in connection with the safe abandonment (decommissioning and removal) of fixed offshore installations in the UK sector of the West European Continental Shelf. The report concludes that as there is insufficient experience of the removal of large structures relevant to this area of the North Sea, some additional research into safety aspects is needed. Recommendations on research needs are presented in the areas of: explosives and other cutting methods; lifting; toppling; concrete and other gravity-based structures; remote handling; phased abandonment; management.
