Fugro has secured a long-term contract with Well-Safe Solutions, a UK-based offshore well decommissioning service provider. Fugro will deliver their Integrated and Bundled Marine-based Solution onboard the Well-Safe Guardian rig, a bespoke semi-submersible unit for executing subsea well-decommissioning work.
This award gives Fugro responsibility for supplying and supporting Remotely Operated Vehicle (ROV) services, Rig Positioning and Remote Operations. Additional support will come from Fugro’s remote operations centre: remote access via the onshore team will reduce the number of Fugro personnel on board the Well-Safe Guardian asset to improve efficiency, offer flexibility and maximise safety.
Kevin Chambers, Fugro’s ROV Service Line Director, said: “I am delighted to announce this contract award with Well-Safe Solutions. Our teams’ skills and experience in Plug & Abandonment and Decommissioning of offshore wells perfectly complement the expertise of Well-Safe Solutions. We will also add value through our extensive knowledge of marine asset integrity.”
Phil Milton, Well-Safe Solutions’ Chief Executive Officer, said: “Following an extensive tender process we are pleased to award this contract to Fugro for ROV, rig positioning and remote operations. The capabilities of their offering enable Well-Safe to maximise overall operational efficiency and delivery for our clients at a cost-effective rate, while maintaining close commercial alignment.”
