Subsea Environmental Services advised by Red Penguin Associates will extract and recycle shore-ends located in the US, UK and Europe, and remove deep-water segments across the North Atlantic. The planning phase took over a year beginning with a Decommissioning Study to address the interests of stakeholders regarding permitting, environmental impacts and GIS/database analysis among others.

Completion of all in-shore works is anticipated by year-end 2021

With many aging systems currently operational and approaching their end of life, the dismantling of subsea installations is of particular importance for both industry and the environment. The operations phase started last week with the planned recovery of shore-ends in Denmark and The Netherlands. It should be completed by the end of 2021. As the work progresses real-time oversight will be crucial to guarantee swift risk identification, analysis and implementation of any necessary mitigation.
