Kvaerner Awarded 2 Contracts for Disposal of Platforms

Source: www.gulfoilandgas.com 2/5/2018, Location: Europe

Kvaerner has entered into an agreement with Allseas for the recycling of the topside and bridge of the 36-year-old Valhall QP platform when Allseas removes this installation for operator Aker BP in 2019. The structures will be deconstructed during winter 2019 and spring 2020.

Kvaerner has also signed a contract with Saipem Uk for disposal of the Varg A installation. Saipem will remove the installation from the field on behalf of Repsol. Varg A was originally delivered by Kvaernerís yard in Verdal, Norway in 1997. The topsides, mono-tower, piles and various ancillaries will be delivered to Kvaernerís disposal site at Stord during the summer of 2018 for deconstruction and recycling.

Kvaernerís facility at Stord is specialised in environmentally responsible disposal, reuse and recycling of components and materials from offshore platforms and underwater installations that have completed their production. There are a large number of such installations on the Norwegian continental shelf and an even larger number in the rest of the North Sea area. Kvaerner aims to increase existing operations in the removal and recycling of such facilities that end their production.

"Over the last year we have secured several contracts for recycling of closed-down oil and gas facilities. With an increasing number of offshore installations reaching the end of their production, the agreements with Allseas and Saipem for removal and recycling are strategically important to usĒ, says Guro H?yaas L?ken, SVP Decommissioning & Marine Operations in Kvaerner.
