CNR International contracted the HAF Consortium for the full engineering, preparation, removal, and disposal of the Murchison platform, comprising of a 24 000 t topside and a 14 000 t jacket on 12 September 2014.

On 19 June, using a Heerema Marine Contractors (HMC) heavy lift vessel, Thialf, the HAF Consortium safely offloaded the lower section of the Murchison platform’s 14 000 t jacket on the quay of AF Offshore Decom’s (AFOD’s) Environmental Base in Vats, Norway. This makes for the successful completion of the offshore removal phase of the platform.

The HAF Consortium consists of HMC and AFOD.

The fixed price contract where the outcome was defined but the method and timing was at the Consortium’s discretion enabled this phase of the overall Murchison decommissioning project to be completed two years ahead of its original schedule.
