Saipem evacuated the site and continued to manage the residual part of the project activities outside the country, although not subject to suspension. Saipem also assessed in close cooperation with the customer the measures to preserve the value of the project and ensure a prompt restart of the works as soon as the safety conditions of the area are restored. Therefore, no significant contributions are expected from the project in the remainder of 2021, with the exception of the reimbursement of costs already incurred and to be incurred for the suspension and safety.
