Decommissioning trends in South East Asia (SEA), demonstrate variation in approach between countries, despite local environmental conditions being somewhat similar. The best decommissioning option will vary subject to local aspects, such as key stakeholders, waste management and disposal facilities, available technologies and the application and interpretation of decommissioning guidelines. This paper will review case studies of the latest decommissioning projects conducted across the SEA region. The aim will be to provide an analysis of some of the latest trends and potential emerging decommissioning approach patterns. Furthermore, this study will discuss whether the emerging decommissioning trends are strategic, pragmatic in approach and add value to an already complex process.
