Square One Law congratulates Able UK as it secures new North Sea contract
Square One Law is delighted to congratulate its client Able UK as the business secures a contract to dispose of four offshore rigs from the Shell-operated Brent Field in the North Sea, bringing 200 new jobs to the North East.
The Billingham-headquartered group will transport three platform topsides and a 138m high steel platform from the Brent Field, which is north east of Scotland, to Able Seaton Port in Teesside.
Able estimates that 97 per cent of the structures will be reused and will create 100 new jobs during the 18-month construction of the new quay, with a further 100 during the six-year recycling period.
Andrew Jacques, Able UK’s managing director, said: “We are delighted to have been selected to undertake this significant platform decommissioning project. This six-year contract will see the deployment of the very latest techniques and technologies in the recycling of these materials.
“We are looking forward to working with our partners on this project, and we are justifiably proud to have been selected for this exciting project.”
