Since the mid 1990’s Saipem has had involvement in various successful offshore decommissioning projects. Its most recent venture was the LOGGS (Lincolnshire Offshore Gas Gathering System) complex in the southern North Sea in summer 2021.

Attending this event

This presentation will include a brief history of the LOGGS complex, a summary of the preparations & removals scopes, an overview of the campaign operations and the challenges encountered when working in this area. The key aspects of the discussion will cover how the operations were successfully completed in difficult environmental conditions, including:

  • The unique challenges of heavy lift activities carried out in shallow water depths
  • High currents affecting the OCV and ROV subsea activities and related problems, such as visibility and shifting seabed
  • Design stage preparations to address known issues
