Precision measurements of b-hadron lifetimes are a key goal of the LHCb experiment. In the B0s sector, the measurement of the effective lifetimes for B0s mesons decaying to CP-odd, CP-even and flavour specific final states are essential for constraining the B0s mixing parameters, ΔΓs, the average width Γs and the CP-violating phase, φs. We present measurements of the effective lifetimes of B0s -> K+ K–, B0s -> J/ψ f0(980) and B0s -> J/ψ φ using 1.0 fb–1 of data collected by LHCb in 2011.
