Oil's well that ends well? Brock Bernstein talks rigs-to-reefs and the fate of oil platforms

from Integrated Environmental Assessment and Management

The 27 oil and gas platforms off the southern California coast are aging quickly. What's next for an oil rig once it reaches the end of its useful life? Should it be broken down and the ocean floor restored? Should it be turned into an artificial reef, since it has already been colonized by marine life for decades? Deciding the fate of these massive hulks of steel and machinery is no simple feat, and this issue's podcast highlights a group of articles whose authors that set out to do exactly that. In the special series "Offshore Platform Decommissioning in California," Brock Bernstein and his co-authors evaluate the options for the aging platforms in southern California, which include some of the largest and deepest platforms ever built. Access the series in the October 2015 issue of IEAM. more
