The D4D Database provides feedback from late life and abandonment operations.&nbsp; It provides practical guidance to engineers when designing new facilities or modifying existing facilities
 
 
The challenges and issues encountered at the end of a facility's life may not be foreseen or correctly considered during the design phase. This lack of attention can make the eventual decommissioning work more technically challenging and costly.&nbsp; The purpose of the database is to identify decommissioning issues based on real industry lessons learnt and translate these into potential solutions which could be implemented in future designs.

Content categorization - SPE has finalized a technical taxonomy that is being used in PetroWiki, OnePetro, and other SPE content.

What is PetroWiki?

PetroWiki was created from the seven volume Petroleum Engineering Handbook (PEH) published by the Society of Petroleum Engineers (SPE). PetroWiki preserves the PEH content in unaltered form (page names that start with PEH:), while allowing SPE's membership to update and expand content from the published version. Pages that do not have PEH: at the beginning may have started with content from the PEH, but have been modified over time by contributors to the wiki. Disclaimer

Unlike some other online wikis, PetroWiki content is copyright SPE. For information about using content from PetroWiki, see PetroWiki:Permissions.
