During the first days offshore, the team and the inspectors established the priority in the scope of work, while the crew installed all the equipment. The actual repair work at the top of the flare tower was completed during the following week. The team repaired many cracks on the flare tip itself and on the flare tip access platform. The flare tips are now fit for the coming years of operation and the flare tip access platform can be accessed safely again.
