Emerging Decommissioning Boom for Aberdeen


In Energy Voice yesterday:

‘Demand for decommissioning services in Aberdeen Harbour have been steadily growing for several years now – but in 2018 the port has been a hive of decom activity. Nearly 2,000 tonnes of material have crossed the quayside from high-profile projects, such as the Maersk Leadon and Janice, and Shell’s Brent Alpha projects. The Harbour has also accommodated materials inbound from Nexen’s Plug and Abandonment Programme. In September, the impressive Maersk Inventor made the first of six port calls into Aberdeen Harbour, carrying materials from decommissioning projects across the North Sea. Since then, the near-15,000 tonne, 137m-long vessel has safely offloaded a range of structures including 48 tonne subsea Christmas Trees, 32 tonne manifolds and ballast blocks, weighing 136 tonnes.’
