IKM Testing has had a framework agreement with Total E&P Danmark A / S (formerly M?rsk Olie og Gass) since 2000 and has performed testing, cleaning and inspection services on many shutdowns, but has never before been involved in such an extensive single project in the Danish North Sea. IKM Testing has been involved in all major decommissioning projects at Norwegian Continental Shelf and has gained solid expertise in safe decommissioning of installations. IKM Testing's continuous improvement work has resulted in safer, faster and more efficient methods of cleaning. This expertise will now be utilised in the international market.

It is gratifying for us to be shown great confidence in decommissioning projects. Cleaning related to removal of installations is a growing market both in Norway and internationally. This contract is a solid strengthening of our established customer relationship with Total DK.

“We are very pleased with Total DK trusting us with this award and acknowledgment of our expertise in de- and re-commissioning services. We look forward to a close cooperation and contribution to Total Tyra Future Project ”, says Vidar Haugland, Vice President - IKM Testing AS.

Removing existing installations is divided into four phases:
Phases 1 and 2 consist of Tyra West B, C and D with associated walkways and Tyra East B, C, D and E with associated walkways. Phases 3 and 4 concern the removal of Tyra East A and Tyra West A.

New platforms will be placed on existing jackets that are extended by 10 metres. New installations are distributed over two field centres. Each field centre will consist of stand-alone process, drilling and living platforms.
