North Sea decommissioning

The decommissioning of redundant offshore installations is regulated in the UK by the Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy (BEIS).
bp has already successfully completed the removal of North West Hutton, the first of the large fixed steel jacket installations to be decommissioned in the North Sea, the removal of the Miller topsides and jacket, and the off-stationing of the Schiehallion FPSO.

Approved decommissioning programmes are in place for the Don and Miller subsea and pipeline infrastructure, and plans are being progressed to fully decommissioning these facilities.

We are currently progressing plans for the decommissioning of the Petrojarl Foinaven FPSO.
