InfraShare Partners has submitted its comments on the U.K. Department of Energy and Climate Change’s document entitled: Maximising Economic Recovery of Offshore UK Petroleum: Draft Strategy for Consultation.  InfraShare has significant concerns that the Strategy developed by DECC pursuant to recent legislation will fail to achieve its intended aim of maximising the economic recovery of petroleum in the U.K. Continental Shelf, which is facing potentially irreversible collapse.  InfraShare’s comments include detailed recommendations for the U.K. government to improve third party access to UKCS infrastructure, enable the rational decommissioning of existing infrastructure, and encourage the development of new shared-use infrastructure on a regional basis.
