ModuSpec, a Vysus Group company, is excited to be involved with Well-Safe Solutions’ upcoming decommissioning campaign in the UK sector of the North Sea.
Our team will carry out the rig inspection of the Well-Safe Guardian semi-submersible prior to the rig being mobilised for its newly secured well plug and abandonment (P&A) contracts. The rig has been signed up by Repsol Sinopec Resources UK Limited initially, followed by CNR International thereafter. The Well-Safe Guardian was acquired by Well-Safe in 2019 and has since undergone an extensive overhaul and modernisation project to reconfigure it exclusively for P&A scopes.
Our inspection programme will report on the condition of the unit’s equipment and maintenance management system and provide independent verification that it is fit-for-purpose, in compliance with recognised industry standards.
Business Development Manager for ModuSpec, Liam Pirie, said: “We are delighted to have been awarded this scope of work by Well-Safe Solutions, as we recognise the importance of being a trusted partner considering this milestone for both the company and the rig on its maiden contract. We are also pleased to be building on an existing relationship with Well-Safe Solutions and one which we hope will continue beyond this current scope.
“ModuSpec has extensive experience in rig inspection in the North Sea having been involved with over 30 semi-submersible rig intakes in the past two years, and a variety of stacked rig/rig reactivation projects, so we are well placed to support Well-Safe Solutions with this campaign and we look forward to getting started later this month.”
A Well-Safe Solutions spokesperson added: “It has been a key priority of Well-Safe Solutions to work with a trusted rig inspection provider during rig acceptance for the Well-Safe Guardian.
“ModuSpec’s service has been professional and focused to ensure delivery within a tight timeline. A collaborative working relationship has been quickly established , and we’re pleased to have benefited from their operational experience in ensuring the Well-Safe Guardian is fit for purpose.”
