Partners in the consortium are AF Gruppen and Heerema Marine Contractors Nederland SE.
Murchison is an oil field straddling the UK/Norway median line that ceased production in March 2014. The steel jacket platform, installed in 1980, was one of the largest in the North Sea.
The LoI relates to a contract forengineering, preparation, removal, and disposal of the topsides and jacket, with a total weight of roughly 37,000 tons. Engineering is expected to start this year, with offshore work beginning in early 2016 with removal and final disposal work continuing through 2020.
