Norwell will then ship dismantling of the platform gear earlier than transferring the platform onshore, the place will probably be handed over to the UAE authorities.
Norwell Engineering has delivered on main tasks for main operators together with properly abandonment design and execution, via direct venture administration, properly engineering and properly examination contracts.
