Reusing equipment and materials in exploration and production operations

Oil rig

A second life for our equipment

At Repsol, we seek alternatives to extend the useful life of our equipment and materials, by reusing them in our own exploration and production operations as well as those of other companies. Moreover, we reuse third-party equipment and give it a second life at our facilities.

Ultimately, this makes it possible to extend the useful life of equipment and materials, while reducing the need to manufacture new equipment. This brings about significant benefits as it reduces the amount of virgin feedstock consumed and reduces our environmental footprint.

Examples of projects we are undertaking:

  • Currently, we are carrying out decommissioning projects at our Gyda (Norway) and Casablanca (Spain) oil rigs. The aim is to fulfill Repsol's commitment to circular economy as these projects are being designed and executed based on circular criteria.
  • Nowadays, we are also reusing materials and equipment from rigs that were assembled for exploration projects drilled a few years ago in the Canary Islands (Spain) and the Algarve (Portugal) as well as our new projects underway in Indonesia.
