GeelongPort is expecting a unique visitor next week with the Helix Q7000 Well Intervention Unit on its way to Lascelles Wharf.
Used for oil and gas field decommissioning, the specialist well intervention vessel will be located at Berth 3 at Lascelles Wharf for approximately twelve days to prepare for deployment into Bass Strait.
What is the Helix Q7000 Well Intervention Unit?
Well Intervention Units are an important part of the process of decommissioning oil and gas fields like those in Bass Strait as they reach the end of their productive life.
This work includes plugging and abandoning wells, rehabilitating former oil and gas fields, and carrying out monitoring.
Why is the Helix Q7000 visiting GeelongPort?
The Helix Q7000 will be at Lascelles Wharf for approximately twelve days to provide enough time for a crew exchange and to load critical supplies and equipment for the decommissioning campaign.
