First Rigs to Arrive for Decommissioning in Great Yarmouth

Published in Oil Industry News on Wednesday, 11 January 2017


Graphic for News Item: First Rigs to Arrive for Decommissioning in Great Yarmouth

The Veolia and Peterson partnership has been awarded two platform decommissioning contracts for recycling at their facility in Great Yarmouth. With an aim of reaching 96% recycling rates the work to recycle materials and assets is expected to begin in spring 2017 when the platforms arrive onshore.

The contracts include the onshore receipt and disposal of offshore materials and several assets for a major gas producer. The work will cover disposal options for a number of production complex and surrounding satellite platforms currently located around 40 mi off the coast of Great Yarmouth. Recycling is expected to start this year and will take around four years to complete.

Recovering these platforms at the end of their operational life is essential. Now using the new facilities the valuable materials that they contain can be carefully extracted and returned to industry for re-use, and where possible assets that have further operational life can be sold. This, in turn, helps boost the sustainability of the industry.

Simon Davies, decommissioning general manager of Veolia, said: “The industry has been looking for collaboration and these new contracts show collaboration in action right down the supply chain. Our partnership has worked well at a number of sites and projects over the last ten years, and we are very pleased to secure the first important contracts into Great Yarmouth.”

The partnership has been providing onshore decommissioning services for over ten years. Set up to cover the full decommissioning of platforms, the services include decontamination, deconstruction, waste management and environmental services together with associated integrated logistics, marine and quayside services. To date, the JV has recovered over 80,000 tonnes of offshore materials and achieved ‘excellent’ environmental assessment ratings in the process. The new works will help create approximately 10 new jobs, with further expansion and employment as the projects develop.

Supported by Peel Ports Great Yarmouth, Local Enterprise Partnership, Great Yarmouth Borough Council and Norfolk County Council the new decommissioning site at Great Yarmouth Outer Harbour aims to establish Great Yarmouth as the center for decommissioning, and to expand to meet the growing need for this type of work.
