Proserv wins three decommissioning contracts in North Sea

Energy services company Proserv has secured three contracts to carry out decommissioning works in the Norwegian North Sea.  

Under the contracts totalling more than $2.5m, the company will provide abrasive cutting, diamond wire cutting, grout removal and dredging services. 

Cutting services will be provided by the company’s Stavanger facility as part of a full severance package covering subsea and topside works.

Proserv claims that its cutting technology solutions can save time in well severance and plugging.

Proserv Norway region president Henrik Johnson said: “To date, we have cut over 300 wells globally in a variety of challenging conditions and environments, so our track record and the reliability of our equipment was a key factor in securing these awards. 

"Cutting services will be provided by the company’s Stavanger facility as part of a full severance package covering subsea and topside works."

“Another major attraction is the fact we can offer a wide range of integrated services all under one roof helping to cut costs, reduce complex supply chains and better manage risk through using a single source provider.”

The new contract awards follow the $8m in decommissioning projects recently completed by the company in Asia-Pacific, the UK, and Gulf of Mexico.

Proserv plans to invest more than $2m to develop two new muti-string cutting (MSC) systems for well severance campaigns. 

The company operates worldwide through 22 operating centres located across 12 countries and focuses on providing drilling, production and decommissioning services.
