Multi-Entity Model for Managing Asset Decommissioning

Join us for a Live 30 minute Webinar followed by a 15 minute Q&A Session.

By attending this webinar, you will learn how a portfolio modeling approach based on linear programming provides an ideal tool for managing the complex decision networks required for decommissioning analysis.  Portfolio modeling provides a means of assessing value at multiple levels of the problem – including maximization of value at the asset, hub, entity, or JV levels.  This webinar outlines the fundamental elements of this model and demonstrates the value differential between application of this approach and use of more conventional roll-up, ranking, or incremental evaluation techniques.

What will you learn?

Paul will demonstrate a basic structure for a decommissioning model, including:

  • Considerations of cessation of production (COP) timing at both the asset and hub levels, demonstrating the value in applying a holistic analysis across entities.
  • Tax considerations (application of prior losses) and the impact these may have on decisions.
  • A comparison between portfolio optimization (at an aggregate level) and asset level assessment or ranking

This webinar will provide attendees with a robust example of the ways in which portfolio analysis and modeling can assist in gaining insights into complex systems.
