Maersk Supply Service project managed and executed the full scope of decommissioning services for the Janice and James subsea fields.
In 2016, we were contracted by Maersk Oil UK, later acquired by Total, to provide the full
marine asset coverage for the Janice and James decommissioning project in the North
Sea. This was led by our project management business area, Integrated Solutions.
Combining 50 years of maritime experience and in-house engineering capabilities,
Integrated Solutions is able to simplify the work scope, making operations more
dynamic. The ability of Integrated Solutions to supply and manage offshore interfaces
throughout the project allowed for greater flexibility, optimised schedule and more time
for our customer to focus on its core business
The responsibilities undertaken in the project include project management, engineering, subcontractor management, offshore planning, interface management and associated logistics, execution of the offshore work scopes required in the removal of the subsea facilities, and thereafter the disposal through management of
waste disposal contractors.
New spooling method saves costs & time
Using the Starfish Class Maersk Master’s large winch drums, we developed an alternative method to recover flexible and umbilical products in a complete section. This eliminated the need to mobilise expensive reel drive systems, minimised trips to port to offload recovered items, and reduced the likelihood of spills.
Optimised vessel utilisation
Maersk Supply Service has a versatile and global fleet at its fingertips. Utilising this fleet, our pragmatic approach maximised the operating potential of every vessel in field, eliminating the need for additional specialist vessels.
