The striking image captures the essence of the landmark contract, which heralded the start of an era of decommissioning in Australia’s oil and gas sector.
“The picture was taken to share the view and experience with onshore colleagues who had never been offshore before and family and friends out with the industry. The common perception is that the offshore environment is harsh, hostile and dangerous, however from experience of working offshore for a number of years I know there can also be some spectacular views.
It also seemed fitting that this was a new dawn of the final phase of the assets life and that within approximately 12 months of the pictures being taken the asset would be removed and the opportunity to see this view from this location would no longer be possible.”
Ross Provan, Global Decommissioning Director commented:
“It’s a fantastic accolade for Petrofac to be nominated in the Decom North Sea awards. We have picked up winner trophies for Excellence in Collaboration, Innovative Contracting Models, Rising Star, and Members Award over the past three years and I hope we can pick up a prize again this year. Best of luck to John-Paul and Stuart.”
