Update: The minister announced that Petrofac has taken operational control of the facility on 3 October 2022

Petrofac Facilities Management Limited has been engaged as the lead contractor to deliver Phase 1 of the Northern Endeavour decommissioning.

We conducted a global, competitive, multi-stage tender for this phase of decommissioning work. In accordance with the Commonwealth Procurement Rules, we have selected the supplier that offered the best value for money.

This $324.89m decommissioning contract will deliver Phase 1 while:

  • adhering to industry and Australian standards
  • staying consistent with good oilfield practice
  • working with industry and regulators to complete decommissioning and disconnection activities as safely, efficiently and cost-effectively as possible.

This is the next step in the government’s commitment to keep the Northern Endeavour and its workers safe whilst also protecting the environment.

Petrofac Facilities Management Limited will begin a managed transition of operational control from the existing operator, Upstream Production Solutions.
