The offshore activities are planned to take place in 2013 for hook-up of the bridges and in the second half of 2014 for the topside modules.
The Eldfisk field is located in the Greater Ekofisk Area and has been in production since 1979. 
Contract partner for the work is Kvaerner's subsidiary, Kvaerner Stord AS.
