When offshore oil and gas installations approach the end of their service life, they become unprofitable if kept operational. After permanent cessation of production, the installation should be safely removed and secured.
Well founded HSE (health, safety and environment) procedures is an important aspect of this work, considering all possible facets and outcomes. We hold the highest standards for HSE and quality assurance (QA), continuously improving and perfecting our routines and methods.

Procedures and regulations in relation to decommissioning
Decommissioning of installations and pipelines is governmentally regulated, which means that there are strict methods and guidelines to follow when performing a decommissioning. An environmental statement and a comparative assessment support the decommissioning program, and in some cases, it includes a wide range of activities such as handling of hazardous material, removal of debris from seabed and monitoring of the environmental impact of the area post-removal.
