In June 2014, HLV Rambiz started the offshore removal phase of project K10-B. During this phase the bridge, the wellhead platform and the living quarters were removed. All items except the wellhead jacket were transported to the dismantling yard by barge.

The wellhead jacket was lifted from the seabed and transported in the hooks of the HLV Rambiz to the dismantling yard. The Rambiz had to leave the K10-B field at this point due to other commitments. Further removal of the production platform was scheduled to be executed in September 2014.
