Scottish supply chain companies can now propose solutions for Modular Well P&A Integrated Support and Operation Services Concepts as part of the offshore oil and gas decommissioning programme jointly developed by Opportunity North East (ONE) and Scottish Enterprise (SE).
The 9th opportunity is presented on behalf of Spirit energy. A new design modular plug and abandonment unit was built and installed on the DP4 platform where it safely and successfully abandoned all 6 wells before moving onto DP3 to abandon a further 6 wells to repeat the operations. The modular rig was deployed from a Jack-up Drill Rig which provided services and interfaces to support the rig operation on DP3 and DP4. This was useful in completing a wider campaign in the East Irish Sea including subsea well abandonments.
The challenge now is to enhance concepts for phase 2 for the abandonment of the 36 remaining live wells at DP1, DP6, DP8 and DPPA.
SMEs must submit propositions by 19 November 2020.
The Scottish Government’s Just Transition Commission (JTC) report published in August recommended a large scale decommissioning programme is created with capital support to drive critical activity in the North Sea, maintain essential skills and position the North Sea infrastructure for a new integrated future. ONE and SE are partnering to support SMEs to target future decommissioning business and are working with 15 oil and gas operators on a series of project-specific opportunities. The programme enables SMEs to present their capabilities, skills and experience to operators for future projects and potentially benefit from business support.
