Petrex in Maersk Leadon Decommissioning

Aberdeen-based subsea specialist, Petrex Developments has recently been awarded a five-figure contract from Maersk Oil North Sea (UK) to provide support to the Leadon decommissioning programme.

The Leadon field is situated in block 9/14 of the North Sea, approximately 190 miles North, North-East of Aberdeen in a water depth of 120m and was acquired by Maersk Oil in 2005 with cessation of production granted in 2006.

Some preparation work has already been undertaken for decommissioning of the Leadon facilities, with the FPSO and associated mooring system removed and reused at the Donan development in 2006 and the flexible risers recovered and disposed of in 2007, whilst other works continue in the North Sea.

Martin Simms, Leadon decommissioning manager, said: ”Maersk is pleased to award the riser base recovery study to Petrex Developments. We realise how motivated the Petrex team are to work with Maersk and appreciate the team has the core competence to offer a streamlined approach whilst demonstrating key drivers for efficient decommissioning works.”

Ian Pithie, business manager for Petrex Developments, said: “Our reputation is built on the quality of our service, building lasting relationships and taking ownership. We are delighted to have secured this decommissioning work with such a high profile operator.”
