Semi-rig with a history
In the early 1980s, “Port Royal” was built and used as an accommodation platform. From 1997 to 1999, under the auspices of Maersk Oil UK, it was converted to a floating production unit (FPU). The same year the platform was rechristened “Janice”, in accordance with planned use on Maersk’s UK field of the same name. Since this time, Janice has been located in the British sector of the North Sea, up to its arrival at Vats in September 2016.
Cutting up and recycling the first semi-rig in Norway is a project that extends over several phases. The first phase involved cleaning the processing plant and all its associated piping and systems. The second phase of the project was the actual demolition of the processing plant. The third phase, on which the AF team is currently working, includes cutting up and recycling the original rig structure.
This is the first time a semi-rig is being recycled in Norway utilising this method, and the project represents an expansion of AF's range of services. The project has a recycling rate of between 95% and 98%.
