De Commissioning Engineering

De Commissioning Engineering

We help operators solve their decommissioning challenges holistically, bridging the gap between operations and decommissioning teams, resulting in significant cost savings and a more efficient transition of activities.

Removing aged subsea architecture after years of service requires a multi-disciplinary team to carry out the many tasks involved. Our holistic planning approach allows operations to continue right up to cessation of production (CoP) and results in significant cost savings.

We help solve a range of common decommissioning challenges and do this by applying our thorough understanding of the safety philosophy of industry design codes and prior practical experience of decommissioning. We identify critical components and the key interactions between subsea disciplines and develop appropriate methods for removing obsolete infrastructure. Our long track record in equipment detailed design, installation engineering and integrity management can also provide a valuable insight into the requirements for reverse engineering and removal. This has helped clients overcome issues such as a lack of knowledge about equipment condition and time-dependent degradation safety while remaining compliant with the relevant legislation.
