Neptune Energy let a decommissioning contract to Maersk Supply Service (MSS) for Juliet field in the UK Southern North Sea.
Piping spools and umbilicals will be removed using the Utility ROV Services system (UTROV), a remotely operated tool carrier equipped with multiple attachments for the recovery of subsea equipment.
The system was previously used for work on Juliet field in 2019 and will be deployed from the Maersk Forza Subsea Support Vessel.
Juliet subsea assets were installed in 2013. Production ceased in 2017 and formal cessation of production was approved in December 2018 by the OGA. The subsea completion lies in Block 47/14b. Infrastructure comprises two subsea wells tied back to the Perenco-operated Pickerill A platform.
Decommissioning work will be carried out in early 2022.
