Consent for preparatory work to remove Yme MOPU

The Yme field is in the south-eastern section of the North Sea in 77-93 metres of water. The field was first developed in 1995, in production licence 114, with Statoil as the operator. The production period lasted from 1996 to 2001.

In 2006, new licensees in production licence 316/316B, with Talisman as the operator, decided to recover remaining resources with a new MOPU (Mobile Offshore Production Unit). The facility is located on an oil storage tank on the seabed.

Having discovered serious structural defects, in the summer of 2012, Talisman took the decision to deman the Yme facility. The licensees have since decided to remove the facility from the field. Under Talisman's schedule, Yme will be removed in the summer of 2015.

The PSA has now granted Talisman consent for preparatory work to remove Yme in accordance with the company's application.
