Abandonment and Cradle to Grave Asset Retirement

Dutch Engineering has brought together a team of experts with local experience and international exposure who can analyze, plan, engineer, and execute downhole abandonment. Our team can bring a single well or group of wells from their current status to the cut and cap.

Asset Retirement

From the well’s current status through the Regulatory Certification, we analyze regulatory and community retirement obligations, retirement asset pool portfolios, and budgetary considerations. The goal is to create an asset retirement plan that meets commitments and maximizes efficiency while holding true to our values and those of our clients.
