National Decommissioning Research Initiative
Independent science to better understand the impacts of decommissioning oil and gas structures on the Australian marine environment.
Our research program
The NDRI, which began in 2018, will allocate approximately $2.4 million from 2023-2026 to improve our understanding of what happens when we remove or leave infrastructure in Australia’s oceans over time.
Delivering independent and objective research is the fundamental objective of the NDRI. Find out more about the structures in place to support this.
