Maersk’s New Decommissioning Business Lands First Gig


  • Maersk Decom, together with Maersk Supply Service, is project managing the removal, recycling and waste management. 
  • Perenco has booked the company to remove and recycle the subsea infrastructure of its Thames field in the UK North Sea.

Maersk’s new offshore decommissioning business, Maersk Decom, has secured its first commercial contract, reports World Oil. 

Waste management 

The project includes the cut and recovery of wellheads and wellhead protection structures, as well as end-to-end recycling and waste management. 

It is being delivered by an integrated team covering project management, engineering, and execution from subsea support vessel Maersk Installer.

Milestone for Maersk Decom 

Lars Banke, CEO of Maersk Decom, said, “This is an important milestone for Maersk Decom, being the first project that moves our new company from studies and project development into execution.

He added,By integrating the project team, we will be able to ensure a seamless interface between the recovery and disposal scopes. We look forward to building a strong partnership with Perenco and expanding on the decommissioning track record already established by Maersk Supply Service and Maersk Drilling.”

The offshore phase commenced last month following the completion of ongoing decommissioning work at the Leadon field.
