Jumbo Scores North Sea Decom Job

Friday, March 15, 2019

Dutch offshore contractor Jumbo said it has been awarded a decommissioning project in the North Sea by TAQA Energy BV, involving the removal, transportation and disposal of three subsea protection domes and piles.

The operation will take place in the offshore series of fields located in the P15 block, about 35 kilometers northwest of Hoek van Holland, Dutch North Sea, at a water depth of 26-28 meters.

Jumbo said it will execute the project using its heavy-lift crane vessel MV Fairplayer in 2019 and 2020. The team will recover and transport three subsea protection domes, each with a dry weight of 150t, as well as removing nine piles. Furthermore, the pipelines and umbilicals at each dome will be buried with mattresses.

The project is part of the emergent North Sea decommissioning program, where much of the offshore oil and gas infrastructure is reaching the end of its productive life and must be safely removed and disposed.
