Maersk Decom, a 50:50 joint venture between Maersk Drilling and Maersk Supply Service, has been awarded a contract to provide an end-to-end plugging and abandonment solution at Tullow Oil’s Banda and Tiof fields off the coast of Mauritania.

The solution bundles project management, engineering, and planning with the execution of plug and abandonment of seven legacy exploration and appraisal wells, as well as the removal and disposal of subsea equipment.

Maersk Decom will provide all personnel, assets, and equipment required for the project, including a drilling unit and offshore support vessels.

A site survey is planned for the second quarter of 2020 and offshore execution is expected to commence in early 2021.
