Well-Safe Scores DNO Decom Project

Well-Safe Solutions announced Tuesday it has been awarded a contract to decommission up to 21 wells on the Schooner and Ketch fields in the UKCS, operated by DNO North Sea (ROGB) Limited, a wholly owned subsidiary of DNO ASA.

The Schooner and Ketch fields, located in the UK Southern North Sea, ceased production in August 2018, with 20 platform wells and a single subsea well. The project will start immediately with a plan to commence offshore operations at the end of 2019. The campaign is expected to last approximately two years.

Well-Safe said it will be responsible for the delivery of key aspects of the project including engineering, contractor management and logistics with DNO retaining well operatorship.

Phil Milton, chief executive at Well-Safe Solutions, said, "This is a fantastic achievement for Well-Safe, allowing us to build a continuous program of work through campaign-based approach and realizing the associated benefits."

The contract award follows Well-Safe's recent acquisition of its first semi-submersible asset, the Well-Safe Guardian.
