As the number of ageing fields in Malaysia increases, the plugging and abandonment (P&A) of wells become a critical activity that carries major liability to operators and regulators. Experience in other parts of the world indicates that wells can make up over 50% of the overall field decommissioning costs. The need for competent technical staff trained in planning, managing and executing P&A has never been higher especially as well abandonment activities are at its early stage in Malaysia with operators having minimal experience.
This in-depth training course will cover the complete topic of well decommissioning, including P&A methodologies, industry guidelines and regulations, and current best practices. Attendees will learn the basic principles of well P&A to effectively manage the risks and uncertainties associated with well decommissioning whilst also developing good planning practices and effective cost control.
This online course is brought to you by Pace Up Training Academy and Well Experts Services (WES) in collaboration with Well Decom Ltd., a trusted advisor on decommissioning and P&A in the UK with over 10 years’ experience in well decommissioning and related training.

Steve Jewell is currently Managing Director of Well Decom Ltd, a UK based decommissioning advisory and training consultancy.
Steve’s expertise is in all aspects of Well Construction (drilling, completions, workovers and abandonment) and Subsurface (geoscience, reservoir engineering, production engineering). He has spent over 10 years working on various decommissioning projects across the world focusing on the largest single element of cost: the plugging and abandonment of wells. This experience has covered actual field decommissioning projects, P&A planning, new technology, decommissioning deferment justifications, mature field asset trading and training for both engineers and non-technical staff.
Over the last 3 years Steve has developed and delivered two distinct well decommissioning courses which have been provided in the UK and Danish sectors of the North Sea for a variety of field operators, service companies and governmental organisations.
Steve is a UK Chartered Engineer (CEng) and a Fellow of the Institute of Materials, Mining and Minerals (FIMMM). He is also registered as a European Engineer (EurIng) and is a member of both the Institute of Directors (MIoD) and the international Society of Petroleum Engineers.
