Saipem Wins Decommission Work in North Sea

Saipem has been awarded the contract for the offshore removal and transport of seven large platforms related to the Frigg gas fields, located in the North Sea, approximately 230 km Northwest of Stavanger, Norway.

The contract, awarded by Aker Kvaerner Offshore Partners (AKOP), has a total value of approximately 130 million Euro.

The activities will be performed as part of the Frigg and MCP-01 decommissioning project, that represents the first large scale decommissioning project ever undertaken in the North Sea.

The vessel Saipem 7000 will carry out the removal and transportation activities between 2005 and 2008.
