Lucion Marine secured the contract to conduct the Inventory of Hazardous Materials (IHM) to Deep Panuke offshore platform for SBM Offshore. We had previously worked with SBM on the preparation of IHM to an FPSO vessel, so this project was the result of the good working relationship already established.
The IHM was done to facilitate a safe and environmentally sound decommissioning of Deep Panuke. Following which, desktop studies were conducted to 8 proposed global recycling facilities to ensure suitability and safe and environmentally sound working practices. Further in-depth audits were conducted to the 2 shortlisted facilities. On-site audits were carried out and final reports prepared with recommendations to our client, and to the facilities where minor improvement actions were required.
Following the appointment of the chosen recycling facilities, the next stage of the project included a review of a specific recycling plan detailing measures in place specific to Deep Panuke dismantling and disposal, with further recommendations being made as necessary. Lucion Marine will also be overseeing/supervising Hazardous Material remediation and disposal (yet to be conducted).
The work was conducted by our IHM HazMat Expert team of Lewis Axon and Stephen Washington, where Stephen was responsible for ongoing decommissioning consultancy.
