Neptune Energy and Royal Boskalis Westminster have completed the removal of the L10-C, L10-D, and L10-G natural gas platforms from the Dutch sector of the North Sea.

More than 3,400 tonnes of steel were removed as part of the decommissioning program that was carried out by Neptune Energy and Boskalis using the heavy lift vessel Bokalift 1. The steelwork was removed from the seabed and placed on the vessel in a series of carefully executed lifting operations.

The removal of rock will return the seabed to a clean state and will mark the completion of this extensive operation.

The three platforms had provided offshore natural gas to the Netherlands for around 40 years and ceased production in 2016.

Neptune Energy said the L10 area continues to operate with gas being produced from numerous platforms centred around the Neptune-operated L10-A platform.
