Marine Subsea UK awarded well abandonment projectsProjects and Operations // July 1, 2010
Marine Subsea UK Ltd has been awarded a series of contracts worth more than
£2 million to carry out a multi-client well abandonment programme for operators in the North Sea.
In a campaign designed to spread the mobilisation and transit costs associated with decommissioning activity, Marine Subsea UK will use its specialist light well intervention vessel Sarah to plug and abandon a single Category 2.2 and four Category 1 suspended subsea wells, spread across a large area of the North Sea.
The contracts are with a number of oil and gas operators including DNO, Bayerngas UK and Tullow. Work is scheduled to start in July with mobilisation in Aberdeen.
Marine Subsea UK will lead the project to perforate, cement and carry out abrasive severing and recovery of the wells. The company will also be responsible for the recovery and disposal of residual oil-based muds.
