  • Banet, Catherine (2020). This book chapter reviews the regulation for decommissioning of offshore oil and gas installations in Noway and assesses the regulatory incentives for reuse/repurposing. The Norwegian legislation offers the example of a mature legislative regime around decommissioning, which has evolved over time, but which also needs to adapt to changing conditions and actors in licensing groups on the NCS. As the NCS is maturing, several fields and related facilities will enter the phase of decommissioning., In  The Regulation of Decommissioning, Abandonment and Reuse Initiatives in the Oil and Gas Industry: From Obligation to Opportunities..  Wolters Kluwer.  ISBN 9789403506937.  28.  s 541 - 557
