D3 Consulting defines North Sea decommissioning waste scope

TOTNES, UK – D3 Consulting has won a decommissioning contract in the UK southern North Sea from an unnamed major operator.

The eight-month program, which started in April, involves preparing materials inventories for 21 platforms, with eight associated subsea installations and pipelines.

Its work scope includes quantification of assets and characterization/classification of the waste and materials.

In June the company completed a three-month project for another operator that involved compiling a waste and materials inventory for the planning phase of another North Sea decommissioning project.

The company has developed the Decommissioning Assurance through Waste kNowledge (DAWN) system, claimed to be the sole information management system for preparing materials inventories and managing waste throughout the decommissioning process.

Director Martun Bjerregard said: “We are typically engaged at the front-end planning and engineering phase of decommissioning operations.

“DAWN has been specifically developed for offshore decommissioning and allows regulatory compliance in waste and materials management to be a timely and simple process.

“Outputs from the system ensure that the right waste information is provided at the right time to the right people, and ultimately provides waste assurance support for the complete decommissioning cycle.”
