The scope of the work includes the reception, dismantling and recycling of three offshore installations from the fields. The Heimdal and Veslefrikk platforms will be removed by Heerema Marine Contractors and transported to Aker Solutions' decommissioning facilities at Eldøyane in Stord, Norway. 

The infrastructures to be removed weigh approximately 68,000 metric tons in total. The objective is to recycle about 98% of the steel and materials.

Early engineering will begin directly for the Heimdal platforms and earliest start of offshore executions can be in 2024.
