Xodus Group Secures North Sea Decommissioning Contract with Nexen
Xodus Group announced Wednesday that it has been awarded a contract with Nexen Petroleum U.K. Limited to provide Front End Engineering and Design (FEED) services in support of the decommissioning of the Ettrick and Blackbird fields in the central North Sea.
As part of the contract, Xodus will assess decommissioning methods for items including structures, flowlines, umbilicals and risers. The company has, to date, delivered more than 50 decommissioning projects for North Sea operators.
Andrew Wylie, Scotland subsea operations manager at Xodus, commented in a company statement:
“Decommissioning in the current economic climate requires a mind-set which is open to change. At Xodus, we deliver this by challenging the norm and constantly using our clever thinking to drive innovation. While offshore infrastructure is complex, a logical approach to decommissioning which makes the most of operational data, lessons learned and latest technologies can reduce costs at every stage of the process.”
