Last week, three workers were killed during the decommissioning of an aging FSO off the coast of Libya, according to operator Mellitah Oil & Gas.
Mellitah put the Sloug up for bid in early 2020, offering up the vessel and any residual hydrocarbons inside of it on an as-is/where-is basis. The terms of the tender put all responsibility for disconnection and towing of the platform on the buyer, including cutoff and isolation of two 16″ pipelines at the FSO’s single-point mooring buoy.
