The Oslo-listed offshore service provider DOF has secured a contract with Norske Shell for subsea services including engineering, preparation, removal, and disposal activities in the Atlantic region.

Valued between 250 million Norwegian kroner ($24 million) and 500 million Norwegian kroner ($48 million), the agreement guarantees over 100 days of combined usage for the vessels Skandi Hera and Maersk Installer.

The scope of work encompasses the retrieval and recycling of various subsea elements such as umbilicals, risers, rigid spools, manifolds, and additional subsea structures at the Knarr and Gaupe fields.

DOF announced that the preparatory phase for the project, which will be coordinated from their Bergen and Aberdeen offices, is already underway, with the offshore phase scheduled for the second and third quarters of 2025.

Mons Aase, DOF's CEO, remarked, “The award continues to demonstrate DOF’s in-house capability of offering turnkey solutions to our existing and new customers, building on our established capability offering in the decommissioning market.”
