Project summary 

The OGTC are supporting a project with N-ERGISE and TAQA Bratani Limited to demonstrate how piece small could be used to reduce cost, with TAQA’s Eider platform being the test installation. Full piece small removal has not yet been proven in the UKCS as it has in the Norwegian sector due to there being limited availability of benchmarking data. This project will include the completion of a detailed Baseline Scope, Schedule and Cost analysis study on Piece Small decommissioning services associated with the TAQA Eider Platform.
