James Fisher Decommissioning, part of James Fisher and Sons plc, 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 multi-million-pound offshore decommissioning project utilized 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 visualization of each abrasive cut made using James Fisher’s cut verification system ensures operations are completed successfully on the first attempt and without the need to reevaluate the initial cut. This saved valuable project time and improved efficiency for the client by reducing cutting times by 50 percent.

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. Utilizing 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.”

James Fisher was able to support the client through the expertise of its in-house decommissioning team and equipment, including abrasive waterjet cutting, hydraulic demolition shears and diamond wire saws.
