James Fisher Decommissioning completes project in the Gulf of Thailand

James Fisher Decommissioning extended its contract with a major offshore engineering, preparations, removal and disposal (EPRD) operator, making the project the largest to date for the offshore decommissioning specialist. The offshore decommissioning project utilised real time cutting verification technology to remove 25 dormant gas platforms in support of the client’s wider asset end-of-life campaign.

During jacket removal, the visualisation of each abrasive cut made using James Fisher’s cut verification system, helped ensure that operations were completed successfully on the first attempt. This saved valuable project time and improved efficiency for the client by reducing cutting times by 50%.

Mark Stephen, Decommissioning Director for James Fisher, says: “We pride ourselves on providing bespoke, environmentally focused solutions to overcome some of the most complex decommissioning structures faced by our customers.”

“This type of operation was a first for James Fisher Decommissioning in terms of jacket removal volume and duration, and we are extremely proud to have been part of the project. Utilising our strong in-house decommissioning capabilities and real-time monitoring technology, we saved valuable project time during the cutting process while ensuring the project was completed to the highest standards for our client.”
