Proven Cutting Solutions and New Cutting Technology for Decommissioning
  • Frank Ludvigsen - Business Development Manager, Proserv

For several decades, Proserv has been market leader in cutting related to decommissioning. To this date, Proserv has cut more than 650 platform structures and over 300 wells. From small UWHPs in the Gulf of Mexico to larger structures like the Frigg DP2 platform in the North Sea or the Iwaki platform in Japan.

Proserv cutting technology covers both mechanical cutting, diamond wire cutting and abrasive cutting, giving the company an unique and broad experience with offshore- and subsea cutting. R&D projects like cut verification, combined internal cutting- and lifting tools and improved P&A technology (well severance) are being developed. This technology can be game changing for the decommissioning industry, reduce risk, and project durations considerably.

More efficient, safer, cost focused and flexible field-proven solutions are the future within both decommissioning and P&A. Reducing the critical window in a heavy lift decommissioning campaign, vessel-based well severance (P&A), decommissioning of Met Masts in the Renewable industry and bespoke cutting solutions will be main topics. Cutting solutions for decommissioning 10 years ahead will be considered as a closing remark.
