ABERDEEN, UK -- TSMarine (Contracting) has been awarded a series of contracts worth approximately $3 million to carry out a multi-client well abandonment program for two major operators in the North Sea.

In a campaign designed to spread the mobilization and transit costs associated with decommissioning activity, TSMarine will mobilize its recently chartered vessel, theRem Poseidon to plug and abandon three Category 2 suspended subsea wells in the southern North Sea.

TSMarine will lead the project to perforate and cement the wells, then sever and recover the wellheads. TSMarine will also be responsible for the recovery and disposal of residual oil-based muds.

As the lead contractor for the program, TSMarine will project manage the campaign, develop the work scope, including but not limited to, developing the required tooling, selecting and managing sub-contractors, planning and executing the offshore operations. In addition, the project team will carry out well reviews, HIRA and emergency response planning.
