Extension of field life

An increasing number of installations in the North Sea are reaching the end of their design life. Technology developments and systematic maintenance have allowed these installations to extend production beyond this barrier. How can we maintain safe and cost-effective operations of assets installed many years before today’s technology and regulations were developed?
