Decommissioning

Although still a developing industry in the North Sea, Osprey has already been involved with several decommissioning projects. By using our marine & land based equipment, engineering, design and project management services we can support our clients projects and assist in developing the best decommissioning solutions.

Example Projects:

Cable decommissioning;
For this project Osprey installed a cable reel drive system onto one of our North Sea barges, which allowed us to receive an umbilical from BP’s Schiehallion Field. The Umbilical was then delivered to a decommissioning facility.

Platforms;
Osprey was appointed as marine contractor to SBS Peterson & Veolia JV on the Shell Indefatigable field. We removed 8 off jackets and 8 off topsides, totalling 10,500 tonnes and delivered these by barge to Newcastle for decommissioning.

  • Land based transport by SPMT & heavy cranes
  • Offloading barges by roll of using SPMTs
  • Provide transport vessels, and barges, from field to decommissioning base.
  • Sea fastening design
  • Project management
