ASCO, the global integrated logistics and materials management company, has successfully completed six separate onshore work scope packages in support of the decommissioning programme for a major upstream oil and gas operator within the UK.
The projects involved the onshore receipt of a wide-ranging inventory including 2,400 m3 contaminated produced water, flushing fluids and 2,000 tonnes of subsea infrastructure consisting of tether bases, risers, umbilicals, concrete mattresses, waste hydrocarbons and debris. ASCO’s comprehensive suite of integrated services were utilised, this included ASCO ships agency (Seletar), quayside receipts using ASCO’s South Base facility in Peterhead, NORM (naturally occurring radioactive material) management utilising ASCO NORM Solutions, industrial cleaning and waste management (reuse, recycling and disposal) carried out by ASCO Environmental Services.
This was a nationwide programme with work scopes delivered at several UK locations from the Port of Tees up to the Port of Cromarty Firth. Key to success of this multi-faceted project was ASCO’s collaboration with partners including Port of Blyth, Thompsons of Prudhoe, Exolum Teesside and Muehlhan Industrial Services, all of which were interfaced by ASCO’s in-house Project Manager to ensure clear lines of communication with all internal and external project stakeholders were maintained in the delivery of safe and efficient operations to pre-determined project aims and objectives.
This latest project is another addition to the organisation’s impressive track record in the decommissioning sector that dates back more than 10 years.
ASCO UK Sales Manager – decommissioning and environmental services, Simon Turner comments, “This project was delivered successfully in line with client expectations. It gave ASCO the opportunity to deliver safe and efficient solutions fully utilising our integrated service lines with additional support from our network of collaborative UK supply chain partners.”
ASCO is fully committed to supplying integrated services to the changing requirements of upstream oil and gas customers as their assets progress through the different distinct phases of their lifetime and to deliver safe, responsible and cost-effective solutions to support in the decommissioning phase of their operations.
