Maersk Supply Service Nets Leadon Decom Deal

Maersk Supply Service informed that it has secured a second contract with Maersk Oil UK for the Leadon subsea decommissioning in autumn 2017.

The contract follows the Janice decommissioning project which the company secured in September. To date, Maersk Supply Service, has removed and delivered the Janice floating production unit (FPU), recovered all subsea risers and sunk the mid-water arches on the seabed in preparation for a rig to begin the plug and abandonment phase of the project.

The next phase of the Janice decommissioning will employ the company’s first of six Starfish new-buildings that are built for deep water anchor handling and oilfield operations

After the Janice decommissioning, the same Maersk Supply Service led team will begin work on the Leadon subsea field in autumn 2017.

Project planning for the Leadon decommissioning is already underway and up to five Maersk Supply Service vessels, including the Starfish new-building from Janice and one of the Stingray subsea support vessel new-buildings, are expected to be utilized in the project program, the company informed.

Located 120 nautical miles off the Shetland Islands, the Leadon subsea structure sits at approximately 120 meter water depth and the subsea structures to be recovered weigh up to 397 tonnes.

The project completion is expected in December 2017.

“Securing the Janice as well as the Leadon contracts shows that Maersk Supply Service is a trusted partner when it comes to delivering projects with broader scopes of work and responsibilities. Through managing project partners and leveraging our internal capabilities we are able to deliver a more simplified, cost effective and safe project solutions for our customers,” said Steen S. Karstensen, Maersk Supply Service CEO.
