Maersk Supply Service gets subsea removal task for Dunlin Alpha platform

Posted On Sep 28 2020 by

first_img“This is a technically challenging scope with large periods of time spent alongside a platform. It is gratifying to see our engineered technical solution selected by Fairfield, as the removal of older conductors that cannot be pulled through topsides remains a challenge throughout the North Sea,” said Olivier Trouvé, head of Integrated Solutions. Project management and engineering starts this year, with offshore execution planned for 2022 or 2023 depending on option selected. Maersk Supply Service will remove four 30” jacket-mounted drilling conductors and two associated conductor guide frames using an I-class vessel. Maersk Supply Service has secured a contract by Fairfield Betula Limited for the removal of the Dunlin Alpha platform’s subsea conductors and guide frames. Installed in 1977, the Dunlin Alpha platform served as the production facility for the Greater Dunlin Area. It is located in UK Continental Shelf Block 211/23a, approximately 137 km northeast of Shetland and 11 km from the UK/Norwegian median line. Production from the Greater Dunlin Area stopped in 2015.last_img read more

first_img Share This StoryFacebookTwitteremailPrintLinkedinRedditThe Latest on the effects of the coronavirus outbreak on sports around the world:___Badminton tournaments in Australia, India and South Korea have been canceled amid the coronavirus pandemic. June 4, 2020 ___German soccer club Schalke has apologized to fans for asking them to justify their refunds for games played in empty stadiums because of the coronavirus pandemic.Schalke had asked for evidence of financial hardship if fans wanted tickets refunded this year rather than waiting until 2022.Schalke says it used “impersonal formulations lacking empathy” and fans will no longer be asked to submit documentary evidence of their personal finances. But the club says the approach was legal under German law.The Bundesliga was suspended in March because of the coronavirus outbreak and spectators have not been allowed to attend any of the games since the league restarted on May 16. The Italian soccer federation is launching a fund of nearly $25 million to help clubs and their members following the crisis caused by the coronavirus pandemic.The Save Soccer Foundation will need definitive approval at a federation meeting on Monday.Federation president Gabriele Gravina says “it’s an initiative which doesn’t have precedents and represents a great assumption of responsibility which the (federation) is taking in favor of the whole soccer system.”The fund consists of 21,700,000 euros ($24,500,000). It will give up to 5 million euros ($5.6 million) to each of the two divisions below Serie A as well as the same amount to support clubs from the amateur soccer league.It will also give up to 3 million euros ($3.4 million) to soccer players and the same amount to coaches and their staff. Schalke has been hit hard financially by the pandemic. Executive board member Alexander Jobst said in March the club faced an existential threat.The team has also struggled on the field and hasn’t won a league game since January.___The Swiss soccer league will restart several days earlier than planned to help Europa League contender Basel cope with a backlog of matches in August.The restart amid the coronavirus pandemic was set for June 19-21 in the top two divisions.

It holds a 3-0 lead over Eintracht Frankfurt from the first leg of the round of 16.Basel also faces a potential clash with this season’s Europa League possibly overlapping with next season’s preliminary rounds.Basel is currently in third place in the Swiss league and the third-place team should enter the Europa League qualifying rounds in late July or early August.___ The suspended Australian Open can’t find new dates. The Hyderabad Open in August and Korea Masters in November were part of the revamped calendar announced last month but have now been put off.The Korea Open in September is still on.The world tour is scheduled to resume at the end of August in Lingshui, China.___The International Olympic Committee is in talks with insurers over compensation for the postponed 2020 Tokyo Games. Olympic operations director Pierre Ducrey says there is “an open discussion” between the IOC and insurance brokers “to try and find the right level of compensation to help us bear the cost of having to wait another year.”The IOC pays for insurance against the cancellation of an Olympics but it is unclear if its policy covers a one-year postponement.Cancellation policies detailed in IOC accounts cost $14.4 million for the 2016 Rio de Janeiro Olympics and $12.8 million for the 2018 Pyeongchang Games.The IOC said last month it set aside $650 million to cover potential extra costs for the postponement.Costs for organizers in Japan are expected to run to billions of dollars. ___Borussia Dortmund has defended a group of players who were accused of breaking Bundesliga hygiene rules while getting haircuts.German newspaper Bild reports that some of the players were pictured without face masks during appointments at home with a celebrity barber. Forward Jadon Sancho was among the players.League rules during the coronavirus pandemic say players should minimize contact with people from outside their household. They have to wear masks for large parts of game days unless actually on the field.Dortmund sporting director Michael Zorc says he spoke with the players about their behavior and adds that they only removed their face masks to pose briefly for pictures. Zorc adds that the 20-year-old Sancho is still “very young.” Premier League clubs have agreed to allow five substitutions in soccer matches.They will adopt the temporary law change when the league resumes on June 17 amid the coronavirus pandemic.There can still only be three pauses to bring on substitutes.Premier League clubs have also agreed to temporarily increase the number of substitute players from seven to nine.___ European Gymnastics president Farid Gayibov says the body will review the coronavirus situation and react accordingly “should the situation at a later date not be considered safe enough any more.”The European championships for rhythmic gymnastics will stay in Kyiv, Ukraine, but are now set for Nov. 26-29.

The “We Run Together” auction includes a personalized bicycle given to Francis by world champion Peter Sagan, a team jersey and captain’s armband signed by former Roma forward Francesco Totti and a swim suit and hat from Olympic champion Federica Pellegrini.There are also experiences such as training sessions and dinners with various athletes.Francis says “the true values of sport are particularly important to face this period of pandemic and especially the difficult restart.”The auctions will take place on the site Charitystars.com starting Monday for two months. There will be a new one every week and each auction will last 10 days.All funds raised will go to the Papa Giovanni XXIII hospital in Bergamo and Fondazione Poliambulanza in Brescia. ___All referees in Italy’s top soccer league have tested negative for the coronavirus.The Serie A referees and some from the second division were tested at the Italian federation’s training headquarters on the outskirts of Florence.They will remain there until June 10 to have further tests and continue training and preparing for the resumption of Serie A on June 20.___ The fund will also provide 700,000 euros ($800,000) to help women’s soccer clubs that are set to complete the season.___The European gymnastics championships have been moved to December after being postponed because of the coronavirus pandemic.The men’s event will run from Dec. 9-13 and the women’s championships from Dec. 17-20 in Baku, Azerbaijan.Baku was originally supposed to host only the men’s championships but France couldn’t reschedule the women’s event after missing its planned dates in Paris in April and May.
