James Fisher launches decommissioning business


James Fisher recently launched James Fisher Decommissioning (JF Decom) to support customers in the renewables and oil and gas markets.

JF Decom will provide customers with a dedicated team to provide delivery in complex projects such as subsea infrastructure removal; structural removal, well severance, and well abandonment.

With one of the world’s largest fleets of decommissioning tooling and in-house design and engineering capability, JF Decom can support the rise in decommissioning projects to deliver cost and time saving solutions critical to achieving regulatory guidance of a 35 percent reduction in decommissioning costs, a target mapped out by the Oil & Gas Authority in 2016.

JF Decom’s services include the well abandonment tool SEABASS that provides a cost effective and quicker alternative to rig-based solutions when abandoning category 2 wells, due to its ability to deploy from a vessel of opportunity and work in any water depth.

“JF Decom is also dedicated to ensuring that decommissioning is conducted as sustainably as possible by restoring the seabed to its natural state,” said Jack Davidson, JF Decom managing director. “With our noise attenuation tools such as Bubble Curtains, we can also minimize environmental impact to marine life during decommissioning works and ensuring we provide environmentally responsible services is something that is at the forefront for JF Decom.”

JF Decom and JF Renewables will be able to work independently or collaboratively to support the drive to net zero by providing full support services to the oil and gas and renewable markets in the installation, maintenance, and decommissioning of assets.
