DRILLING contractor Archer has been awarded the contract for the removal of the Derrick equipment on the Cormorant Alpha by Taqa.

The scope of services includes the engineering design and preparation activities, derrick dismantlement in modular sections by specialist rope access teams followed by the de-construction and removal of the DES drillfloor and major structures.

Following removal of the existing DES package Archer’s engineering teams, from their Blackburn-based office, will prepare the platform’s drilling and pipedeck structures to enable the platform to receive a modular drilling rig for Plug & Abandonment (P&A) operations.

Bill Muir, Archer engineering area manager, said:  “We are very pleased with the award of this contract. The combination of significant experience in facilities brownfield engineering combined with our integrated rope access and construction teams will allow Archer to execute the project without use of heavy lift vessel.”

The engineering activities in relation to the derrick removal activities are estimated to commence later this month with the offshore deconstruction works estimated to commence mid to late Q1 2021.
