PIONEERING SPIRIT REMOVES 11,000-TONNE GYDA JACKET IN SOUTHERN NORWEGIAN NORTH SEA
Allseas has removed 11,000 tons jacket from the Gyda field. The removal and delivery for recycling concludes the latest successful decommissioning job for Allseas in 2022. At 11,000 tonnes, the latest lift job for Allseas’ new jacket lift technology is one of the heaviest ever.
Gyda is an offshore oil field located in the southern Norwegian section of North Sea along with Ula, Tambar and Tambar East fields. The Gyda field was discovered in 1980 and started producing on June 21, 1990. Originally developed by BP, in 2003 it sold its interests (61%) in the Gyda Oil Field to the Canada-based Talisman Energy for $90 million. Talisman operated the field until it was inherited by Repsol in 2015 as part of the acquisition of Talisman and assumed the operatorship on behalf of the licence.
Gyda is located in approximately 66 m (217 ft) of water.
