Australian energy service firm Worley said today it was helping Allseas to decommission two of Spirit Energy’s east Irish Sea platforms.
Worley has laid on engineering, procurement and construction services, including preparations for removing the Morecambe Bay DP3 and DP4 normally unmanned installations (NUIs).
Worley’s offshore work on DP4 is now complete with support services on DP3 due to start early this year.
The two 11,000-tonne platforms will be lifted and taken to Energy Park Fife in Methil on board Allseas’ huge Pioneering Spirit construction vessel.
Worley’s Aberdeen office is leading the project, with support from the firm’s Scopus Engineering subsidiary.
Worley is providing management and assurance services, while Scopus is laying on engineering and site construction at Morecambe Bay.
Shaun Poll, senior vice president for energy offshore in the UK for Worley, said: “We are thrilled to be providing our decommissioning services to Allseas, building on our already well-established relationship.
“Decommissioning offshore installations is a complex process, but our specialized engineering resources and project management expertise has helped to make this project a success.
“And I’m pleased to say that around 20 onshore and over 45 offshore roles have been secured as we move into the next stage of the project.”
He added: “Despite the challenges brought about by the pandemic, I’m very proud of the team’s resilience and the work we’ve delivered. We look forward to supporting Allseas to safely remove the DP3 and DP4 installations.”
