Maersk Supply Service lands 10-vessel project in the North Sea

Maersk Supply Service has won a subsea decommissioning contract from Maersk Oil UK in which 10 of its vessels will be deployed at the Janice subsea field in the North Sea (pictured).

The offshore services company will undertake engineering work, project planning and managing the scope of the project.

Anchor handler, platform supply and subsea support vessels will all be deployed to help with the work, which is scheduled for completion in summer 2018.

To date, all anchor chains have been disconnected, the first risers have been recovered and removed and the tow-away of the floating production unit has been completed, according to a release.

Maersk Supply said it has engaged three sub-contractors to supporting the engineering, ROV work, and waste management aspects of the project.

Jørn Madsen, CEO of Maersk Supply Service, said the contract win shows the company’s ability to provide an “innovative” end-to-end work scope to its customers, together with its sub-contractors.

“This is a prime example of Maersk Supply Service managing a service integration that reduces costs and complexities for the customer. We see good potential for this service in the decommissioning market,” Madsen said.
