EnQuest submits North Sea decommissioning plan less than five years after first oil

EnQuest has submitted plans to decommission a North Sea development and its production vessel less than five years after achieving first oil.

The UK-listed operator started up the Alma-Galia fields in October 2015 as tie-backs to the EnQuest Producer floating production, storage and offloading vessel (FPSO).

However, the firm has now submitted plans to the UK government to shut down the fields and take the vessel to shore for recycling, despite hopes it would be in production for up to 15 years after first oil.
