Maersk Decom and Supply Service on Thames Decom
Maersk Decom, together with Maersk Supply Service, is project managing the removal, recycling and waste management of subsea infrastructure for Perenco’s Thames field in the UK North Sea.
The project includes the cut and recovery of wellheads and wellhead protection structures, as well as end-to-end recycling and waste management. It is being delivered by an integrated team covering project management, engineering, and execution from subsea support vessel Maersk Installer.
“This is an important milestone for Maersk Decom, being the first project that moves our new company from studies and project development into execution. By integrating the project team, we will be able to ensure a seamless interface between the recovery and disposal scopes. We look forward to building a strong partnership with Perenco and expanding on the decommissioning track record already established by Maersk Supply Service and Maersk Drilling,” says Lars Banke, Chief Executive Officer of Maersk Decom.
The offshore phase commenced last month following the completion of ongoing decommissioning work at the Leadon field.
Maersk Decom was created in April 2018 as a 50:50 joint venture between Maersk Drilling and Maersk Supply Service to provide scalable decommissioning solutions to the offshore energy industry. With its decommissioning specialists and direct access to rigs and support vessels, the company offers the full range of decommissioning scopes under flexible commercial models and integrated project management.
From baseline surveys and engineering, to plug and abandonment, infrastructure removal, and recycling and waste management, Maersk Decom is committed to constantly rethinking decommissioning to maximise value and sustainability. It aims to ensure no resources – whether it’s people, time or assets – go to waste.
