Innovator platform decommissioned in Gulf of Mexico

InterMoor, a subsidiary of Acteon Group Ltd., has completed decommissioning operations of the Innovator platform in Gomez field on Mississippi Canyon Block 711 in the Gulf of Mexico.

The project, conducted in 910 m of water, involved disconnecting 10 risers-umbilicals and 12 mooring lines, and towing the Innovator to Ingleside, Tex.

InterMoor’s involvement with the Innovator platform dates back to 2006 when the structure was a mobile offshore drilling unit (MODU) known as the Rowan Midland.

Last year, US Department of Justice sued ATP Oil & Gas Corp. and ATP Infrastructure Partners LP for violating provisions of the federal Clean Water Act and Outer Continental Shelf Lands Act by allowing the discharges from the Innovator (OGJ Online, Feb. 12, 2013).
