Nothing in life is certain except death and taxes. Franklin may have made the same observation for offshore infrastructure! Decommissioning must be planned for and is now an integral consideration for new offshore infrastructure. But what about older assets now reaching the end of their life?
Cathie Associates have the requisite expertise to assist in the decommissioning of all infrastructure in contact with the seabed. Common geotechnical considerations are breakout forces for shallow foundations, vibro extraction for piles and trenching design for the decommissioning of surface laid pipelines.
Cathie Associates appreciate that decommissioning costs are all off the bottom line and are committed to providing economic, practicable solutions.
