Able UK wins decommissioning contract

Heerema Marine Contractors has awarded Able UK the contract to dismantle, recycle and dispose of ExxonMobil Canada’s offshore natural gas platforms, which have been operating off the coast of Nova Scotia, Canada.

The first shipment of structures is scheduled to arrive at the Able Seaton Port facility on the River Tees in the UK during the second quarter of 2020.

“The project will involve the removal of seven platforms and their jackets using one of the biggest crane vessels in the world, the Heerema Thialf, with the components being transported to Able Seaton Port in a series of barge movements,” explained Able UK executive chairman, Peter Stephenson.

“We expect that the onshore dismantlement, recycling and disposal work will extend over a ten-month period.”

Currently, work is well underway at Able Seaton Port on the decommissioning of the 24,200-tonne Shell Brent Delta topside which arrived last May.

Two more platforms from the Brent field are scheduled to arrive at Able Seaton Port, with the Brent Bravo expected in May 2019 and the Brent Alpha a year later.
