Decommissioning of Offshore Facilities in the Gulf Coast
DLS is leading the Gulf’s decommissioning of operators’ offshore platforms. Our team can help support your project by providing a turn-key solution to the full field decommissioning or assist in the completion of individual phases of offshore decommissioning.
Permitting and Regulatory Compliance
DLS is extremely knowledgeable in the regulatory framework needed to ensure that your decommissioning of the offshore asset complies with all regulations. Our engineering team will provide you with a detailed Decommissioning Execution Plan that will walk you through all of the activities and environmental information and site surveys.
To prepare the offshore platform for decommissioning, DLS will ensure that all of the platform preparation follows all regulatory guidelines and protocols including; process equipment has been flushed, cleaned, and disposed of properly, removal of cables and pipes, and underwater jacket facilities have been prepared for removal.
Well Plugging and Abandonment
One of the major cost considerations in decommissioning offshore assets, DLS collets data and preliminary inspections to provide the guidance you can trust for the selection of abandonment methods to best fit the project and BOEMRE’s approval process. Our Abandonment team will ensure that all safety regulations are followed throughout the process all the way to pressure testing and integrity verification.
Complying with BOEMRE’s regulations and approved by our Regional Supervisor, conductor casing will be removed by severing, pulling or sections, or offloading depending on the environmental considerations and properly disposed of.
Platform Removal – Mobilization or Demobilization
Depending on the size of the offshore platform, we have the experienced talent and equipment to support the removal of both the topside and jacket of the structure safely.
Site Clearance and Verification
DLS pre and post-decommissioning surveys, underwater inspections, and test trawling services will ensure that the platform decommissioning is in compliance with all rules and regulations.
At DLS, our approach focuses on safety for our environment and stakeholders by utilizing our stringent protocols.
