    Global Industries awarded decommissioning and abandonment project

    Projects and Operations // April 30, 2009

    Global Industries has been awarded a project by Shell Offshore for the decommissioning and abandonment of an 8-pile production platform located in Eugene Island 331 'A' in approximately 250ft of water in the Gulf of Mexico.

    The vessels involved in this project have begun mobilization for the job.

    For execution of the project, Global will be utilizing the DLB Hercules, a DP vessel with a crane capable of lifting 2,000 tons.

    The 485ft Hercules accommodates 269 personnel, and will be carrying out decommissioning and abandonment activities, which includes six major lifts ranging from 400 to 1,800 tons.

    Global will also be using cutting tools developed by Norse Cutting & Abandonment (NCA). NCA has developed patented cutting technologies which will make the Shell job safer, more cost-effective, and be completed in a shorter amount of time.
