Consent for use of Island Wellserver and Island Frontier at Sigyn and Johan Sverdrup

Statoil has received consent to use Island Wellserver and Island Frontier for well intervention activities at Sigyn and Johan Sverdrup


Statoil has previously received consent to use Island Wellserver and Island Frontier for well intervention activities on fields in the North Sea, Norwegian Sea and Barents Sea. The consent has now been extended to also cover the Johan Sverdrup and Sigyn fields.

The consent applies from 1 March 2018 to 31 March 2020.

The Johan Sverdrup field is on the Utsira High in the North Sea, 40 kilometres south of Grane and 65 kilometres north-east of Sleipner. The field is under development and production is planned to start in 2019. Statoil is the operator.

The Sigyn field lies in the Sleipner area in the central sector of the North Sea. The field has been developed using a subsea template tied back to Sleipner Øst. Statoil took over the operatorship of Sigyn from ExxonMobil in 2017.

In addition to two new fields, the consent has also been extended to cover injectivity tests. This is an activity involving testing and logging the injection of water into the reservoir. Injectivity tests are a new activity for Island Wellserver and Island Frontier. 

The two facilities are owned by Island Offshore, whose head offices are in Ulsteinvik.

Island Wellserver was built in 2008 at the Aker Langsten yard. It is registered in Norway and classified by DNV GL. Island Wellserver was issued with an Acknowledgement of Compliance (AoC) by the PSA in April 2009.
