Norwegian oil and fuel firm Aker BP has awarded a call-off for removing and disposal of a number of installations within the Valhall space within the North Sea to Allseas.
The work, which includes the removing and disposal of Valhall DP- PCP- and Hod topsides and jackets, can be carried out within the interval from 2021 to 2026, Aker BP stated on Wednesday.
Further, Aker BP has invoked the choice for the removing and disposal of the Valhall QP jacket and the two/Four-G jacket on the Ekofisk area. This choice was related to the 2017 call-off for the removing and disposal of the QP topside.
All installations can be eliminated by the world’s largest heavy-lifting vessel, the Allseas-owned Pioneering Spirit.
The awarded call-offs relate to the long run (6 years + 2 + 2) body settlement for transport, set up, and removing (T, I&R) executed by Aker BP and Allseas in 2017.
In June 2019, the topside of the unique lodging platform at Valhall (QP) was eliminated by Pioneering Spirit. This was the primary of the three authentic buildings (QP, PCP, DP) at Valhall to be eliminated as a part of the modernization of the Valhall area centre.
Valhall and Hod have handed one billion barrels of oil equivalents (oil, fuel, and NGL) produced, greater than thrice what was anticipated on the opening of the sphere in 1982.
SVP Projects in Aker BP, Knut Sandvik, stated: “Aker BPs ambition is to revitalize the Valhall space and to supply one other billion barrels from the realm. A protected and environment friendly removing of the unique buildings can be an necessary milestone on this journey. The remaining installations on the Valhall area centre and the Flank platforms will proceed to supply for a few years to return”.
