The project will involve multiple stages, from monitoring, demobilisation, through to decommissioning. The works will be procured in accordance with Government Procurement rules. It is likely that a number of tenders will be offered during the multiple phases of the project.

Procurement strategy

A Request for Information to the market received feedback to help understand what information prospective suppliers may need in order to tender for and provide a full turnkey solution for the decommissioning of the Tui oil field.

MBIE will use the information provided to support the development of the procurement strategy and plan for decommissioning activities.

MBIE expects that the eventual decommissioning of the Tui assets will be fully outsourced by way of an open market procurement process, and the successful contractor will then be responsible for delivering the finished product.
