Last month, Veolia Environmental Services, in partnership with Peterson, has been awarded a major North Sea decommissioning project.
The project is for decommissioning of subsea equipment decommissioning associated with the Schiehallion and Loyal fields, a part of BP’s Quad204 project.
The project will manage over 11,500 tonnes of offshore subsea materials which will be recycled at Veolia’s decommissioning facility in Lerwick, Shetland.
The project is expected to take 14 months to complete.
The initial team of 15 members of staff will load-in and start dismantling a range of subsea equipment, mainly flexible pipelines, structures and the FPSO mooring systems that are located on the seabed that formed the infrastructure of the oilfield.
BP’s Offshore Programme Director for re-development of the Schiehallion and Loyal fields Andrew Train is pleased to be working with Veolia to achieve the high recycling targets, he said in a press release.
Veolia has previous experience in decommissioning following in 2011 when it decommissioned seven gas rigs at Swan Hunter Shipyard on the River Tyne.
