    Does anyone have experience of transferring or disposing of data for any decommissioned fields within the UKCS that they would be willing to share?

    What I would specifically like to understand is whether the requirement to transfer the seismic data for a field really does mean all surveys, regardless of vintage or quality? Is this completely non-negotiable, or has anyone been able to come to an arrangement with DECC or the OGA to only transfer later, higher quality surveys?

    Any wisdom you can share on this would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
