Wednesday, Jul 12, 2017
On September 12th 2014, CNR International (CNRI) contracted the HAF Consortium, consisting of Heerema Marine Contractors (HMC) and AF Offshore Decom (AFOD), for the full Engineering, Preparation, Removal, and Disposal (EPRD) of the Murchison platform, comprising of a 24,000 tons topside and a 14,000 tons jacket.

On June 19th 2017, by use of HMC’s Heavy Lift Vessel Thialf, the HAF Consortium safely offloaded the lower section of the Murchison Jacket on the quay of AFOD’s Environmental Base in Vats, Norway, marking the successful completion of the offshore removal phase of the Murchison platform. The fixed price contract where the outcome was defined but the method and timing was at the Consortium’s discretion enabled this phase of the overall Murchison decommissioning project to be completed two years ahead of its original schedule.
