OPRED approves decom plans for Cormorant Alpha topsides
TAQA has received formal approval for its decommissioning plan (DP) covering the Cormorant Alpha topsides, with work slated begin from 2026 at the earliest.
24 February 2022
The Abu Dhabi-headquartered group submitted decommissioning plan and environmental appraisal (EA) for the platform to the Offshore Petroleum Regulator for Environment & Decommissioning (OPRED) in 2021.
The platform lies in Block 211/26 of the northern North Sea (NNS), around 64 miles north east of Shetland. TAQA acquired the asset from Shell in 2008.
