Energy in transition – the role of decommissioning
13 June 2023
Decommissioning is an integral part of the energy transition journey.

In this webinar, Clifford Chance experts David Evans, Spencer Flay, Leonhard Rudolph, Pat Saraceni and Kirsty Souter discussed the key risks arising in decommissioning operations, offered suggestions on how to mitigate and manage those risks and key factors for any robust decommissioning strategy.
