Supporting the Financial, Legal and Insurance Industries

TSB assists customer in avoiding  under-reporting of Asset Retirement Obligations (AROs) and prevents future financial disruption.




Decommissioning estimate amounts were being questioned on accuracy, both  internally and during a recent audit. TSB study uncovered a considerable underestimation of decommissioning costs. Updated and accurate snapshot of decommissioning liability exposure, providing crucial cost verification for company’s balance sheet. Accounting Firm and their customer both satisfied.

Hope the new year finds you well!

TSB was recently contracted by a Big Four Firm to perform a third-party verification of their customer’s decommissioning liabilities. During the course of our research, we found the decommissioning costs were highly underestimated, partially due to outdated evaluation methodologies.

TSB was able to provide a cost study based on current, regulator-accepted methodologies, current regional resource rates, and safety considerations, using our proprietary Platform Abandonment Estimating System (PAES®).

The Firm and their customer were pleased with the results and are both confident that they have an accurate snapshot of their decommissioning liability exposure.

TSB’s support of various financial, legal and insurance industries goes hand-in-hand with our specialization of producing AROs for our end-user clients on a worldwide basis.


This is the first in our “Supporting the Financial, Legal and Insurance Industries” series.
