The complexity of decommissioning is enormous with many factors to be considered such as when to move from late-life production to early stage decommissioning, asset manning and maintenance requirements, regulatory requirements, the technical complexities of platform topsides cleaning, topsides removal, jacket removal, and the selection of heavy lift vessel.
Because of the cost and complexity, decommissioning planning is sometimes put in the 'too hard basket' for later consideration. This is an understandable but risky approach, with various factors with the potential to bring the decommissioning timing in sooner than expected, with a subsequent period of 'catch up' required from the asset owner.
We are experienced supporting operators in decommissioning work in various activities such as late-life production staging, preparation for the decommissioning stage, engineering down the platform, documentation and management of change, topsides preparation and conditioning, platform 'lighthousing' and other activities such as heavy lift vessel options analysis.
We're ready to work with you.
