Farewell to the Petrojarl Banff
After 21 years of service in the North Sea Banff and Kyle Fields, the Petrojarl Banff has been decommissioned.
The vessel completed her final voyage on May 8, 2021 and is now safely moored alongside the Modern American Recycling Services Europe A/S (MARS) quayside in Frederikshavn, Denmark in preparation for green recycling. The recycling process is expected to take approximately 12 months, during which time Teekay will have representatives on-site to ensure the unit is green recycled in compliance with all applicable EU regulations as well as our own vessel recycling policies that go above and beyond the Hong Kong Convention.

Petrojarl Banff FPSO Decommissioning
A substantial number of studies and reports contributed to the examination of options for decommissioning of the Petrojarl Banff FPSO and associated mooring system and determined the decommissioning works execution methodology.
The Petrojarl Banff FPSO and the associated mooring system was decommissioned across 2020 / 2021 under the Banff and Kyle Fields Decommissioning Programs for FPSO and FSO Float Off (Phase 1), which was a joint DP submission with CNR International.
The remaining field infrastructure will be decommissioned by CNR International on behalf of Teekay Petrojarl Floating and Production Limited under a separate Decommissioning Program (Phase 2).
Post completion of the Banff and Kyle Fields Decommissioning Programs for FPSO and FSO Float Off (Phase 1) associated works a close out report was submitted to the regulator and interim approved pending full decommissioning of the Banff and Kyle fields.
In 2019, Altera Infrastructure executed as part of their Duty Holder responsibilities, decommissioning works of the disused SAL Buoy System in the vicinity of the Petrojarl Banff FPSO, under a separate Decommissioning Program.
Subsequent to these works a close out report was submitted to the regulator and approved.
