Veolia to Dismantle Subsea Equipment from BP’s North Sea Fields

Veolia Environmental Services in partnership with Peterson has been awarded a major North Sea decommissioning project.

The contract with BP, revealed in December 2013, is to dismantle and recycle subsea equipment associated with the Schiehallion and Loyal fields located in the West of Shetland region as part of the Quad204 major project to redevelop the fields. The project will manage over 11,500 tonnes of offshore subsea materials which will be recycled at Veolia’s decommissioning facility in Lerwick, Shetland.
The project will take 14 months to complete and will recycle up to 98% of the materials.

The initial team of 15 members of staff will load-in and start dismantling a range of subsea equipment, mainly flexible pipelines, structures and the FPSO mooring systems that are located on the seabed that formed the infrastructure of the oilfield.
David Lusher, Executive Director for Veolia Environmental Services said: “The UK North Sea decommissioning market offers considerable opportunities and we estimate that is worth around £1 billion a year. We are delighted to be extending our decommissioning capabilities for BP to help them recycle this valuable resource.”

Andrew Train, Offshore Programme Director for BP’s re-development of the Schiehallion and Loyal fields, said “It is always pleasing to be able to utilise local expertise when it is available. We look forward to working with Veolia to deliver this part of the project and to achieving the high recycling targets that are possible”.

Veolia has previous experience in decommissioning following in 2011 when it decommissioned seven gas rigs at Swan Hunter Shipyard on the River Tyne.
