AF Decom to decommision 6 off Shell platforms in the North Sea


AF Gruppen (AFG), has today signed an interim  agreement with Shell U.K. Limited (Shell)  regarding the decommissioning of 6 platforms from  the Indefatigable gas field. This field is located  in the British sector of the North Sea. 

The commitment under this interim agreement is  limited to preparatory work. Negotiations on the  final contract are ongoing and execution of the  final contract is subject to Project Final  Investment Decision by Shell. The value of the  full contract scope is expected to be around 230  MNOK. AF Decom Offshore, part of AF Gruppen`s  environmental business, will carry out the offshore lift preparations and onshore dismantling  activities for the Inde Decommissioning project.

Preparatory work is underway for the offshore platform decommissioning activity due to start in early 2009. The project is scheduled for 3 years. 

As part of the work, AF Decom Offshore is set to recycle around 13,000 tonnes of steel and equipment from the Inde structures.

The location of the onshore dismantling activities will be the subject of a separate announcement. 

-This is the fifth decommissioning project AF Gruppen has undertaken offshore, and the second in the British sector of the North Sea. The agreement strengthens our strategic target of delivering environmental services, and is recognition of our competence in dismantling and recycling offshore steel structures internationally. The contract forms the basis for further growth in our environmental business in the North Sea, says Pål Egil Rønn, CEO of AF Gruppen.
