ConocoPhillips Skandinavia is said to intend to enter into a contract with Heerema Marine Contractors (HMC) for the removal and disposal of platforms connected to the Ekofisk field in the North Sea.
According to AF Gruppen, a subcontractor to HMC, the contract includes engineering, preparation, removal and disposal (EPRD) of four platforms with a total tonnage of approximately 36 000 tonnes.
The platforms are to be removed and disposed from 2017 to 2022, AF noted.
ConocoPhillips previously contracted HMC for 2008-2014 decommissioning, removal and disposal/recycling of 9 platforms within the Greater Ekofisk Area. For this campaign, AF Decom Offshore was awarded the contract with HMC for offshore work such as hazardous materials mapping, engineering/preparation for lifting as well as the onshore demolition and recycling.
