Dof Subsea has landed a North Sea decommissioning contract with Ithaca Energy.
It was handed out as part of the first phase of decommissioning for the Ithaca-operated Athena field.
UK managing director, Robert Gillespie, said: “This is a very important project for us. Conditions in the industry are challenging, but the North Sea decommissioning sector is active and we are well positioned to deliver in this market. We have completed several decommissioning projects in recent years, and we are looking forward to working with Ithaca Energy on this scope.
“Project management and engineering are established strengths at Dof Subsea, enabling us to provide a full decommissioning service to a high standard. In everything we undertake, our teams are dedicated to efficient and safe operations, consistently delivering the best results for our clients.”
The scope of work includes the removal of mid-water arch and risers. It will be carried out in the final quarter of this year.
Athena is located in UK Continental Shelf block 14/18B in the central North Sea (Outer Moray Firth area) at a water depth of 130m. Ithaca ceased production from the Athena field in January 2016, with the FPSO departing the field in February 2016.
Elsewhere, Ithaca today said it was weeks away from first oil from its latest North Sea development. Read more here.
