Augean North Sea Services (ANSS) has secured a contract to support Shell in decommissioning the Curlew floating production, storage and offloading (FPSO) vessel. Augean will provide specialised industrial cleaning, NORM Decontamination and waste management before a vessel can be dismantled, recycled and disposed of, to ensure environmental compliance.
ANSS is an environmental services company supporting the oil and gas industry, providing waste management services and industrial cleaning. In 2017, ANSS began developing a decommissioning decontamination facility in Dundee, in collaboration with Forth Port and other tenants of the port of Dundee, where the Curlew FPSO will be docked.
Port Manager of Forth Ports Dundee, David Webster, said: “This decommissioning related contract from Shell will bring an exciting large-scale project to the Port of Dundee. As with all the other major Dundee projects to date we continue to prove that the Port of Dundee’s marine and infrastructure capabilities are suitable for large-scale oil and gas activities. Our supply chain partners such as Augean North Sea Services have been very successful by choosing to be based within the port and working closely with Forth Ports to deliver and execute these contracts.”
