Due to concerns over structural integrity of the platform for future operations and drilling it will be towed to shore this year, also undergoing a general upgrade during the yard-stay.
The framework agreement is based on a project execution plan that at key milestones gives Statoil the right to call-off execution of further phases.

Kvaerner built and delivered Njord A at its Stord yard in Norway in 1997.
