The UK Government has approved Ineos’ decommissioning programme for its Cavendish platform.
The field is in the southern North Sea, about 75 miles from the coast of Flamborough.
Ineos owns 50% of the field. It’s partner is Dana Petroleum.
The Cavendish installation, which is not normally manned, is tied back to the Murdoch MD platform, 27 miles to the south-east.
The topsides weigh 546 tonnes and the steel jacket weights 508 tonnes.
