The top deepwater countries and operators have a US$27 billion decommissioning bill creeping up in the next ten years. However, they would prefer investing in cash-generating activities. Deepwater production got traction in the late 1990s, and many large pioneering fields are reaching 20 years of service life — a decision point for investing in service life extension or planning decommissioning.
