Fossil Energy – Decommissioning
Petrofac and Promethean Decommissioning Company (PDC), a pure-play Decommissioning Operator, have formed an Alliance to decommission the South Pass 60, South Pass 6, and East Breaks 165 fields, offshore of the Gulf of Mexico.
The legacy offshore fields and assets include nine platforms, 200 wells, and 32 pipeline segments. The scope includes the safe, efficient, and assured decommissioning of the fields.
PDC takes on the role of Decommissioning Operator and is responsible for fulfilling the field Decommissioning Orders received from the U.S. Department of the Interior’s Bureau of Safety and Environmental Enforcement in February 2022.
Petrofac has been appointed by PDC as the Decommissioning Services Provider in a contract valued at around US$200m in line with the BSSE (Department of Biosystems Science and Engineering’s) estimated decommissioning cost.
The Alliance has selected Danos, a leading Gulf of Mexico offshore services provider, for over 75 years to support field operations and the decommissioning programme.
The project will be led from Houston, with the integrated Alliance team using the latest digital software, including Petrofac’s proprietary project management tool Turus™, to deliver the decommissioning project with comprehensive dashboards, transparency and assurance.
