BRENT SPAR LOOKS FOR A SOLUTION

The Brent Spar platform was taken out of commission in October 1991 and it lies dormant in Erfjord near Stavanger in Norway. Thirteen options for abandoning or re-using the structure were identified, which were reduced to four abandonment and two re-use options, these were: horizontal dismantling; vertical dismantling; in-field disposal; deep water disposal; refurbishment and re-use; and continued maintenance. The article discusses the advantages and disadvantages of these options.
