DEME was appointed the Engineering, Preparation, Removal and Disposal (EPRD) contractor for the decommissioning of the damaged ‘Halfweg’ gas platform for Petrogas E & P Netherlands BV.
The normally unmanned Satellite Platform comprised a topside on four 54” O.D. legs that were secured into a concrete gravity-based foundation. Production at the facility ceased in June 2016 and plug and abandonment was completed in 2017. The platform subsequently suffered severe structural damage at the end of 2017 after being struck by a ship. Damage was caused to both the topside and the legs.
