Babcock Bags Rough Decom Deal from Centrica

Babcock is working with Centrica Storage to plan for decommissioning of the Rough 47/8A platforms and infrastructure in the southern North Sea.     

The assets to be decommissioned comprises two bridge linked platforms currently shut in ahead of decommissioning.

This initial decommissioning contract for Babcock will provide all aspects of governance and compliance prior to start of decommissioning operations. This initial project phase is anticipated to take up to 12 months.

Ian Lindsay, managing director Energy and Marine Technology, Babcock said: “Babcock is delighted to support Centrica as its Rough infrastructure nears decommissioning. With our expertise in project delivery reinforced by our experience across the decommissioning sector – including all aspects of verification, compliance and governance – we are trusted to deliver. We look forward to working together in this new collaboration.”

Greg McKenna, managing director at Centrica Storage, said: “With 47/8A now shut in and no longer operational, this is the right time for us to decommission and remove the two bridge-linked platforms and associated infrastructure. We look forward to working closely with Babcock as we ensure the planning is in place ahead of decommissioning Rough safely and in an environmentally responsible way.”
