We have developed Materials Inventories and Waste Characterisation for more than 45 North Sea platforms…that is more than 15% of the total number of platforms scheduled for decommissioning over the next 30 years!
At D3 Consulting we provide Waste Assurance to Operators and the Supply Chain throughout the decommissioning cycle.
Our unique DAWN information management system has been developed specifically for offshore decommissioning and provides Operators with waste assurance and waste tracking through the whole offshore decommissioning cycle. From an initial gap analysis of waste and materials data & information held by Operators through to pre-populating bespoke reports and forms, generation of survey and sampling plans, GIS engineering plans of the platforms and ensuring that the data held is validated and verified.
Having been involved for two decades with the whole decommissioning cycle, we know the end game for the waste and materials arising from decommissioning works. This enables us to design and carry out pragmatic and robust Hazardous Materials Surveys, Materials Inventories and Residual Waste Inventories with key factors in mind:
- Identifying, quantifying and characterising hazardous materials and substances on platforms with ensuing Human Health Risk Assessments to feed into the decontamination and dismantling design phase
- Identifying plant and equipment for resale and reuse with comparisons to scrap values taking into account H&S, costs and processes for deplanting and selling on assets
- Reaching the optimal recycling rates for topsides, jackets and subsea bearing in mind H&S, cost, programme and compliance
- Ensuring compliant and documented waste management and disposal solutions for those wastes not recyclable nor reusable
With DAWN, regulatory compliance in waste and materials management just became a lot more straightforward!
