In April 2020, following Tui Oil Field (Tui Field) operator, Tamarind Taranaki Ltd, being placed in receivership and liquidation, the New Zealand Crown assumed responsibility for the decommissioning of the Tui Field. This responsibility was delegated to the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment (MBIE).
The overall decommissioning project involves three main phases of offshore work:
1. Demobilisation of the floating production storage and offloading vessel Umuroa (FPSO Umuroa);
2. Removal of the subsea infrastructure;
3. Plugging and abandonment of the wells.
Phase 1, demobilisation and removal of the FPSO Umuroa, is underway. MBIE is now seeking Registrations of Interest (ROI) to plan and execute Phases 2 and 3 of the decommissioning – this ROI covers Phase 3: Plugging and abandonment of the wells. Phase 2: Removal of the subsea infrastructure is subject to a separate ROI that was issued on 9 February 2021.

MBIE is seeking Registrations from interested companies/consortia/alliances/joint ventures with the required resources (vessels and expertise) for the plugging and abandonment of all the wells from the Tui Field (PEP38158). MBIE expects that where interest is expressed by a group a lead Respondent would be appointed /nominated who would be the prime contractor responsible for the end-to-end delivery of the project. Respondents must demonstrate a credible track-record in decommissioning and be able to perform the work in MBIE’s desired timeframe, which is the New Zealand summer of 2021/22.
