Statoil has announced that it has awarded a contract to Hereema Marine Contractors for the platform removal and transportation of the Huldra platform, and another contract to AF Offshore Decom for the dispoal and recycling of the platform.
The Huldra field is a Statoil-operated gas and condensate field on the Norwegian Continental Shelf, off Bergen. The gas and condensate production was closed down in September 2014.
The plan is to remove the Huldra platform during 2019 with the subsequent disposal and recycling work taking place at AF Offshore Decom’s environmental base in Vats, Norway within the first half of 2020. It is expected that more than 95 percent of the platform will be recycled.
The platform is being removed according to the Ospar convention.
