  • Decommissioning

John Lawrie was contracted by Centrica Energy to receive, size reduce, transport and process various subsea items recovered from the Rose Field and landed at the Port of Leith, which included a canopy, as shown above, and associated materials. A spool fitted with sensors and valves was found to be NORM contaminated.

The canopy, which was too large for road transportation, was cut-up at the quayside prior to loading onto vehicles for processing and recycling at John Lawrie’s licenced waste treatment facility in Aberdeen.

The NORM contaminated spool, sensors and valves were dispatched separately under the appropriate dangerous goods transport regulations to NORM Solutions Limited, a joint venture company of John Lawrie’s located in Aberdeen for decontamination. This state-of-the-art authorised facility removes NORM scale contamination in a safe and environmentally secure closed environment with no emissions to air, water courses or drainage systems.

Following decontamination of the spool all of the items, with the exception of the sensors and valves which were returned to the client for reuse, were processed at John Lawrie’s treatment facility resulting in a 100% recycling rate.

"...resulting in a 100% recycling rate."

In common with work of this type, a site specific Method Statement detailing how the work would be carried out together with associated Risk Assessments and Operating Procedures were prepared by John Lawrie for approval by the Client and the Port Authority prior to the work commencing.
