Spirit Energy Production (UK) ltd. has engaged ABL Group to provide marine warranty survey (MWS) and marine consultancy services for the operator’s decommissioning portfolio in the southern North Sea and the Irish Sea.

Spirit Energy has contracted ABL on a three-year contract (with three optional one-year extensions) to provide the marine warranty scope for the operator’s decommissioning campaigns.

ABL, which has provided a wide range of marine and engineering services for decommissioning operations in some of the world’s most complex offshore structures, will provide MWS services for decommissioning operations involving the removal of topside, and jackets for the following three offshore oil and gas platforms: Audrey A & B, and Ensign.

Ashley Perrett, Engineering Manager, ABL Aberdeen, commented, “ABL has considerable experience in supporting clients with the safe, efficient and optimised decommissioning of their oil and gas assets. Our long history in the sector, combined with our participation in a number of industry firsts within decommissioning, gives us unique insight into the range of challenges which can impact these complex marine operations.”

ABL’s MWS scope of work includes technical document and procedural review, on-site attendance and marine consultancy support for offshore operations during the campaign. Suitability surveying of the proposed fleet for the campaign is also part of the scope.
