Petrex Developments has recently been awarded a contract from Maersk Oil North Sea (UK) Ltd to provide support to the Leadon Decommissioning Programme.
The Leadon field is located in block 9/14 of the North Sea, approximately 190 miles North - North-East of Aberdeen in a water depth of 120 m. Some preparation work has already been undertaken for decommissioning of the Leadon facilities, with the FPSO and associated mooring system removed and reused at the Donan development in 2006 and the flexible risers recovered and disposed of in 2007, whilst other works continue in the North Sea.
Martin Simms, Leadon Decommissioning Manager, said: “Maersk is pleased to award the Riser Base Recovery Study to Petrex Developments. We realise how motivated the Petrex Team are to work with Maersk and appreciate the Team has the core competence to offer a streamlined approach whilst demonstrating key drivers for efficient decommissioning works.”
Commenting on their recent award win Ian Pithie, Business Manager for Petrex Developments, said: “Our reputation is built on the quality of our service, building lasting relationships and taking ownership. We are delighted to have secured this Decommissioning work with such a high profile operator.”
