Plug, abandonment and casing recovery specialist Ardyne has been awarded a four-year contract for the provision of fishing services for 86 wells as part of the well plug and abandonment (P&A) programme for two fields in the Northern North Sea.

The work, which is being managed out of Ardyne’s Aberdeen headquarters, has commenced and is expected to last up to four years across two assets. The job involves Ardyne’s TRIDENT and TITAN P&A technologies, with the company having invested approximately £2.6 million in brand new industry-first fully traceable (NS-1) fishing and milling tools.

The efficiencies generated by Ardyne’s industry-leading bottom hole assembly technologies could save more than 40 days of rig time across the two platforms, which equates to more than 300 extra downhole trips being avoided.

As well as hiring experienced staff, Ardyne is also investing in its existing workforce with the implementation of a new training scheme to allow workshop employees to grow with the company, while new trainees will also benefit from the programme.

Alan Fairweather, CEO of Ardyne, said: “This award is testament to the proven quality and time saving efficiencies of Ardyne's P&A technologies, plus the experienced team and engineering capabilities we have in Aberdeen.

“We are excited to be part of our client’s decommissioning team and look forward to delivering efficiencies during the P&A phase of these platforms. It’s encouraging to see North Sea decommissioning moving forward again, and our investment in a new training scheme will help prepare our workforce for playing a key role in that.”
