JFSE Takes On Another Decommissioning Project in Gulf of Mexico

James Fisher Subsea Excavation (JFSE), a part of James Fisher and Sons, is embarking on its 80th decommissioning/salvage job in the Gulf of Mexico.

The platform was destroyed during Hurricane Ike in 2008. The region has been hard-hit by hurricanes in the past decade and the recent extreme weather saw this project delayed for a number of weeks.

JFSE has deployed its T4000 spread which will clear the platform jacket to give access for rigging and removal before excavating around the rig’s legs to 18ft below the mud line to allow for the safe access of a diamond wire saw.

Steven Kaub, business development manager Americas at JFSE, said: “The US Gulf of Mexico is an important marketplace, both in terms of generating energy and for decommissioning due to ageing infrastructure, old fields or the effects of extreme weather.

“This is our expert team’s 80th decommissioning/salvage project in the region. This is a key milestone in our extremely strong track record of delivering bespoke solutions for clients who are facing taxing demands to deliver time and cost-efficient decommissioning solutions.”
