Established in 2021 by Perth-based National Energy Resources Australia (NERA), the Centre of Decommissioning Australia (CODA) is a collective bringing together the world’s major oil & gas companies, service, and research organisations.

With an estimated $60 billion in decommissioning activity required to tackle Australia’s aging oil and gas infrastructure over the next 30-50 years, CODA established to address the challenges, and help maximise opportunities as Australia transitions to cleaner energy sources.

Motive’s decommissioning capabilities

With many years’ experience supporting decommissioning projects in the mature markets of the North Sea and Gulf of Mexico (GoM), Motive is uniquely positioned to service the emerging market in Australia.

Offering safe, efficient decommissioning solutions via experienced personnel and a vast rental fleet that includes A&R Winches, Hydraulic Shears, and Subsea Baskets, Motive can support various final stage requirements of projects.

Activities covered include subsea handling; flexible and umbilical decommissioning; pull-ins; or multi-purpose lifting and pulling, and an advanced refurbishment, repair and maintenance service helps maximise commercial, operational, and environmental performance through the dismantling, removal, or repurposing of late-life or retired assets.

Why join CODA?

As the Australian offshore oil and gas sector faces a significant decommissioning phase, it is important to Motive to be part of a collaborative culture that aids knowledge transfer and awareness, ensuring continued innovation and improvement for sustainable late-life processes.

CODA is a valuable platform, creating an industry community of global expertise. This will be vital as the Australian decommissioning sector grows, helping stakeholders harness new competitive opportunities, achieving new solutions for exacting minimal environmental impact through decommissioning processes, and ultimately ensuring Australia can meet its legislative obligations.

As we continue to solidify our presence in Western Australia, Motive looks forward to working closely with our fellow members and wider industry stakeholders to help make a positive impact.
