Statoil has received approval from Petroleum Safety Authority (PSA) to use Island Wellserver and Island Frontier for well intervention activities at Sigyn and Johan Sverdrup fields, offshore Norway.
This represents an extension of the previous consent received by Statoil to use Island Wellserver and Island Frontier for well intervention activities on fields in the North Sea, Norwegian Sea and Barents Sea.
The consent applies from March 01, 2018, to March 31, 2020, PSA noted.
The Johan Sverdrup field is located on the Utsira High in the North Sea, 40 kilometers south of Grane and 65 kilometers north-east of Sleipner. The field is under development and production is planned to start in 2019.
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.
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.
