Company Details

SOURCE Saipem | 14 December 2016

Saipem Limited, a subsidiary of Saipem SpA, has been awarded a new contract in the North Sea utilising the Saipem 7000, reinforcing Saipem’s presence in this highly strategic area where the Company has a long operating history.

Located in the UK sector of the North Sea, the Project is an EPRD contract for the decommissioning of the topsides and jacket of BP’s Miller Platform. The Saipem 7000 is one of the most technologically advanced vessels in Saipem’s fleet. It is equipped with a dynamic positioning system, has a 14,000-tonne lifting capacity, and is capable of laying subsea pipelines in ultra-deep waters.

The use of the Saipem 7000 for projects such as the Miller Project eliminates the need for additional cargo barges and allows operations to be conducted in a much safer manner and in a less restrictive weather window. Over the last decade, Saipem has performed a variety of major decommissioning projects, including the Frigg Field decommissioning and, more recently, the removal of the Ekofisk 2/4 S jacket and the Ekofisk 2/4 G bridge.
