CNRI is preparing to permanently cease production from and thereafter decommission the Ninian Northern platform, which is one of three fixed platforms within the Ninian field complex in the East Shetland basin.
As the responsible operator for the Ninian Northern Platform, CNRI is required to submit a Decommissioning Programme to the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) for review.
Prior to any approval, Decommissioning Programmes are subject to public consultation. To that end the draft Decommissioning Programme for Ninian Northern is now available for review by interested parties on the BEIS webpage.
(Table of Draft Decommissioning Programmes under Consideration)
and as below:
Ninian Northern Platform Draft Decommissioning Programme
In support of the proposed decommissioning solution, CNRI has also carried out a Comparative Assessment, prepared an Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) and has engaged extensively with Stakeholders. Relevant documentation and reports on these activities is accessible from the Documentation Library tab on this page.
Interested parties are welcome to make comments, post queries or provide feedback on the Ninian Northern draft Decommissioning Programme using the Contact Us link.
The consultation period will close on 2nd April 2017.
