Heerema Marine Contractors (HMC) has announced the award of a decommissioning contract for the  Brae Bravo platform, operated by Marathon Oil.

Heerema will undertake engineering, preparation, removal and disposal (EPRD) services.

Houston-headquartered Marathon began initial planning and evaluation of decommissioning the Brae Area facilities in 2009.

The Brae Area facilities are located about 170 miles north-east of Aberdeen.

Heerema confirmed that the the scope comprises of the topsides, the flare jacket & bridge and the main jacket.

Koos-Jan van Brouwershaven, CEO HMC said: “At the start of the tendering process the teams set themselves a clear goal: We are in it to win! It has been a true team effort along the way together with our long standing partner AF Offshore Decom to secure this contract.

“We are both pleased and proud that this has earned our clients trust in the HAF consortium to execute this complex EPRD project”.

The Brae Alpha platform started producing in 1983, followed by Brae Bravo in 1988 and East Brae in 1993.

Hydrocarbons are exported via the Marathon-operated Brae-Forties pipeline to the Forties Pipeline System and then onwards to Kinneill for processing.

Cessation of production (CoP) on Brae Bravo is expected in 2018.

Bengt Hildisch, president of AFOD, added: “Thanks to all, both within Heerema and AF Offshore Decom that helped to win this important work. The award of both Dunlin Alpha and Brae Bravo in the last two weeks, cements HAF’s position as the absolute market leader in EPRD projects in the North Sea”.
