Inaugural Decom Survey Results Highlight “Supply Chain Reality”


Decom Mission, the only trade organisation solely focused upon late life and decommissioning, has published the first independent survey of decommissioning practitioners from across the energy sector.

Providing primary insight into current supply chain capability and capacity, as well as a snapshot of sentiment across the sector, respondents were asked to comment upon key areas including Commercial, Confidence, Environmental, People & Skills, Safety and Regulation. Treated in confidence, responses were collated from asset owners and operators, supply chain companies, consultants and regulators in oil and gas, nuclear and renewable industries.

The findings were premiered at the opening session of Decom Week ’24 by Decom Mission CEO, Sam Long, who comments:

“Whilst we understand that there will always be an emphasis on future opportunities within the energy industry, we felt it imperative to focus on the supply chain’s current reality, and in doing so have re-categorised what many of us will recognise on a more anecdotal basis into actionable and quantifiable insight.

“In doing so, we can further assist the supply network (which incorporates asset owners), in addressing identified challenges, such as a requirement for more sustainable and equitable business practices, a continued need to advance decom culture and mindset and the enablement of better outcomes. Those outcomes include improved recycling and reuse of assets, support for circular economy principles, more effective regulations, and a commitment to the decarbonisation of decom operations.”

The Decom Mission Survey was developed in conjunction with specialist process safety and data science company, Empirisys, using its in-house designed and built intelligent survey tool – Sense.

Peter Sueref, Chief Technology Officer and co-founder of Empirisys said: “Partnering with Decom Mission has been a fantastic collaborative opportunity for us to deploy our skillset on a project, the results of which are poised to inform real change in the decom supply network.

“The carefully crafted survey elicited thousands of text-based answers, resulting in a deep pool of information from which to draw insights. Our approach to scrutinising these responses involved not only analysing the numerical and statistical answers, but also adding real value by deriving the sentiment and insights from long-form text answers, and weaving all of this together to provide rich, meaningful insights.”
