During the third quarter of 2019, Maersk Decom, together with Maersk Supply Service, project managed the removal, recycling and waste management of subsea infrastructure for Perenco’s Thames field in the UK North Sea.
The project included the cut and recovery of wellheads and wellhead protection structures, as well as end-to-end recycling and waste management. It was delivered by an integrated team covering project management, engineering, and execution from subsea support vessel Maersk Installer.
“This is an important milestone for Maersk Decom, being the first project that moves our new company from studies and project development into execution. By integrating the project team, we will be able to ensure a seamless interface between the recovery and disposal scopes. We look forward to building a strong partnership with Perenco and expanding on the decommissioning track record already established by Maersk Supply Service and Maersk Drilling,” says Lars Banke, Chief Executive Officer of Maersk Decom.
In her blog post, 100% of steel and grout recycled, about the end-to-end recycling and waste management solution delivered as part of the project, Recycling and Waste Management Engineer Ann O’Connor stated:
“At Maersk Decom, our recycling and waste management philosophy is rooted in working directly with waste recyclers, creating lean and transparent value chains as well as ensuring recycling activities are carried out in a safe and environmentally sound manner,” says Ann O’Connor, Recycling and Waste Management Engineer.
