Well Abandonment Services Market Outlook - 2027

When an oil well is no longer productive, it must be permanently sealed and taken out of service or else it remains as a liability for the company that owns it. Well abandonment services provide integrated solution for safe decommissioning of matured and non-productive oil & gas platforms and subsea infrastructures. This eliminates the ongoing costs of maintaining such oil wells and provides a guard against potential liabilities. The service providers seal each well with permanent, leak-free barriers that meet all legal obligations.
