The past 12 months have been a busy and prosperous period for Proserv Offshore with the completion of several significant decommissioning projects worldwide. In the Asia Pacific region, the company has completed a major subsea cutting contract for the decommissioning of a platform jacket. Weighing almost 16,000 metric tons, Proserv Offshore provided all the cutting equipment and services, including specialised ROV-operated water abrasive cutting tools designed to cut up to 80in.
In the UK, Proserv Offshore recently carried out the removal of a subsea manifold protection structure for a client in the North Sea. To fulfil this project, Proserv Offshore was contracted to provide water abrasive cutting services, dredging equipment and personnel for the severance and removal of the manifold protection structure in four sections. By being able to provide all the cutting and dredging services without the assistance of another sub-contractor, this reduced the number of personnel required and overall project management costs.
Further afield, Proserv Offshore completed the abandonment and removal of St. Mary Land & Exploration’s Gulf of Mexico Vermillion area platform, pipelines and wells destroyed during Hurricane Ike. The project was awarded based on Proserv Offshore’s ability to assume asset ownership and provide a complete turnkey project managed service, including all subsea tooling, contracting and third-party management.
With over 30 years’ experience, Proserv Offshore has abandoned and decommissioned over 600 structures worldwide. Based on this impressive track record, the company aims to further increase awareness of its products and services and group wide capabilities into current and developing markets.
