The Decommissioning contract for the Shell Brent field represents a significant milestone for both Shell and ABLE. It features new techniques (specifically the deployment of the Pioneering Spirit, a dynamically positioned vessel for single lift removal of large offshore facilities) and, to date should be seen as the most important project of its type.
To accommodate the arrival of the single piece large-scale elements of the contract a new bespoke quay has been designed and constructed.
The investment in the new Quay 6 and associated developments is £28m and involved over 193,000 man hours (equivalent to 106 jobs over a 1 year period).
