The platform is located at the German continental shelf of the North Sea, and has been a part of the pipeline which exports gas to
Europe. The work covers
planning, engineering and execution of subsea removal work on the jacket
substructure as well as preparatory inspections and seabed intervention work
offshore. In this context DeepOcean will provide own vessels as well as ROV’s
and various cutting equipment to be mobilized on the main offshore
decommissioning unit supplied by the AF Group.
The LOI also includes an option for similar work activities on the B11 platform.
The estimated contract value is approximately NOK 68 million, excl. optional work mentioned above. The work will start immediately, with offshore work planned for period 2013/2014.
“This is the 2nd significant award of a decommissioning contract to DeepOcean this summer following the recent award of the Statfjord SFC loading buoy EPRD contract by Statoil. I’m pleased to learn that our customers appreciate the skills and capabilities of DeepOcean in the decommissioning segment. Also, I’m looking forward to yet again co-operate with the AF Group on a challenging project where the joint capabilities of the two companies are brought together”, said Mads Bårdsen, President, DeepOcean.
