Additionally it will provide two riser platforms and four flare platforms with four interconnecting bridges and one single-point mooring buoy to be located north of Zirku Island.

Onshore scope includes provision of drilling utilities, foundations for SARB1 and SARB2, transport, installation, hook up, and assistance in commissioning of the accommodation modules.
