Petrofac Completes Well Decommissioning for Tullow

Petrofac has completed well decommissioning for Tullow Oil in the Southern North Sea.

Well engineering and well project management services were deployed within the six-month contract for the Horne & Wren asset in support of Petrofac’s established position as Duty Holder.

As a part of Tullow Oil’s Thames Area Complex decommissioning project, Petrofac delivered the conceptual design, detailed planning, procurement, subcontractor management and the full execution of the plug and abandonment operations.

Alex Macdonald, managing director – well engineering, Petrofac Engineering & Production Services, said: “This was a challenging but highly rewarding project.  In addition to providing a highly cost-effective solution, we also saved time on the project by proposing optimizations solutions to allow the preparatory works to be integrated as simultaneous operations.

“This highlights our ability to provide effective outsourced plug and abandonment project management, seamlessly integrated into the overall decommissioning project and driving value through differentiation.”

Ian Manners, project manager at Tullow Oil, said: “Petrofac went above and beyond our expectations, with a high level of engagement achieved by collaborating with us as a single team. The UKCS operation is amongst the very best, if not the best in the world.”
