Jumbo said on Friday that the deal with TAQA would involve the removal, transportation, and disposal of three subsea protection domes and piles.

According to the company, the removal operation will take place in the offshore series of fields located in the P15 block 35 kilometers northwest of Hoek van Holland in the Dutch North Sea at a water depth of 26-28 meters.

Jumbo added that the project was part of a North Sea decommissioning program, where much of the offshore oil and gas infrastructure is reaching the end of its productive life and must be safely removed.

The company’s MV Fairplayer vessel was chosen to execute this project in 2019/2020. The team will recover and transport three subsea protection domes, each with a dry weight of 150 tonnes as well as removing nine piles. Furthermore, the pipelines and umbilicals at each dome will be buried with mattresses.

It is worth noting that TAQA has proven and probable reserves of 12.5 mmboe in its Dutch portfolio and a total average daily production of 7.4 mboed.
