Funding Opportunity: Oil and Gas Decommissioning

Closing date: 16:00 on 3 December 2015

As part of the Oil and Gas Innovation Programme, the Natural Environment Research Council (NERC) invites applications for an Innovation funding call focusing on decommissioning and its environmental management.  NERC will invest up to £1m in a cohort of projects lasting six to 12 months which translate existing NERC-remit science in the following theme areas:

  • Development of baselines (proxies) and innovative monitoring techniques and approaches
  • Data management, sharing, access and collaboration
  • Impact of man-made structures on the natural environment and options for decommissioning
  • Innovative options for alternative use or extending the life of structures

All costs will be funded at 80% Full Economic Cost (FEC).  All projects must involve an end-user as a project partner and address an end-user need.
