Augean starts work on major decommissioning project for Shell


Augean North Sea Services (ANSS), a wholly owned subsidiary of Augean plc, welcomes the arrival of the Curlew FSPO (a Floating Production Storage and Offloading vessel) into the Port of Dundee and with it the start of a major contract supporting Shell in its objective to decommission redundant North Sea infrastructure.


Augean will be fulfilling a significant contract to provide specialised industrial cleaning and waste management services to Shell for the Curlew FPSO to ensure environmental compliance before the vessel is dismantled and recycled later this year.


For the next couple of months, the Curlew FPSO will be berthed in Forth Ports' Port of Dundee, where ANSS has developed a major decommissioning and decontamination facility working alongside Forth Ports and other tenants of the Port of Dundee.  Over the last 18 months, the ANSS team have been collaborating with Bilfinger Salamis in order to make detailed preparations that will maximise the efficient delivery of the project.


ANSS provides complete waste management services to the Oil and Gas Industry. It provides a wide range of specialist industrial cleaning services and has an expertise in handling all types of offshore wastes.  ANSS has developed a multi-million-pound Decommissioning Centre in Dundee that has been operational since 2017.


ANSS Managing Director, Simon Gibb: "Our site in Dundee is now becoming a recognised location for decommissioning North Sea infrastructure.  We expect the Curlew project to be the first in a long line of other similar opportunities.  This is good news for us (underpinning our recently upgraded performance expectations for the year) and very good news for Dundee, as it will help the local economy and support a number of jobs both through direct employment as well as throughout the supply chain. With our commitment to best in class customer service we are very much looking forward to starting work with Shell on this project."
