WATCH: Scaldis Decommissions Horne and Wren


Scaldis SMC has recently executed Horne and Wren platform decommissioning project.

The company secured the contract in April 2016 with Tullow Oil, operator of the Horne and Wren field.

The plugging & abandonment (P&A) of wells and offshore preparatory works were carried out from the jack-up vessel Kraken.

The heavy lift vessel Rambiz, was mobilized from Flushing, the Netherlands, on March 10, 2017 and arrived at the offshore field two days later.

Over the following three days, the complete platform was decommissioned; an in- and out-seabed survey was carried out; the topside was cut, lifted and sea fastened onboard the Rambiz; the jacket piles were dredged and cut; the Internal Lifting Tools (ILT’s) were installed; and the jacket was lifted.

The Rambiz returned to a disposal yard in Flushing with the topside stowed on deck and the jacket suspended in the PS crane.

“It has been an absolute pleasure to work closely with the Scaldis team,” said Darin Scales, senior project engineer for Tullow Oil UK. “Throughout the project lifecycle, SCALDIS has exceeded expectations and I would definitely recommend them for similar projects in the future. It was a slick and seamless operation.”
