Scopus Engineering awarded decommissioning agreement with Petrodec

Scopus Engineering, a wholly owned subsidiary of Worley, has been awarded a decommissioning services agreement with Petrodec in the North Sea.

The agreement is to provide dimensional control survey services for the removal of the Amethyst C1D topside in the southern North Sea.

The six-month agreement will see Scopus provide surveying services to support the safe removal of the normally unmanned installation (NUI) before it’s transported to the Netherlands for decommissioning.

The project will be executed from Scopus’ headquarters in Aberdeen, UK and will include the mobilization of personnel to the NUI to carry out the surveying services.

Scopus has 30 years’ experience in dimensional control survey services which allow for accurate, three-dimensional information to be provided to operators. Access to this real-time data limits the number of site visits required when decommissioning assets, which focusses on safety and helps to maintain schedules and reduce costs.

On the announcement of the agreement, Graeme Wilson, Managing Director of Scopus said, “I am thrilled that Scopus has been chosen to deliver these services to Petrodec and to begin this new relationship. The agreement is significant in supporting our decommissioning portfolio and cements our position as a go-to dimensional control survey services provider for decommissioning projects.”
