Decommissioning work for Perenco’s Thames field is to be carried out by Maersk Supply Service and Maersk Decommissioning.
Danish firm Maersk will manage the removal, recycling and waste management of subsea infrastructure.
The project includes the cut and recovery of wellheads and wellhead protection structures, as well as end-to-end recycling and waste management.
Perenco’s Thames is a mature field in the Southern North Sea.
Maersk Supply Service is a part of AP Moller – Maersk AS which employs roughly 70,000 employees
It is being delivered by a team covering project management, engineering, and execution from subsea support vessel Maersk Installer.
Lars Banke, chief executive of Maersk Decom, said: “This is an important milestone for Maersk Decom, being the first project that moves our new company from studies and project development into execution.
“By integrating the project team, we will be able to ensure a seamless interface between the recovery and disposal scopes.
“We look forward to building a strong partnership with Perenco and expanding on the decommissioning track record already established by Maersk Supply Service and Maersk Drilling.”
