ExxonMobil secures consent to use Island Frontier and Island Wellserver on Sigyn fieldProjects and Operations // August 17, 2016
ExxonMobil has received consent to use the vessels Island Frontier and Island Wellserver for light well intervention on the Sigyn field. Both are owned by Island Offshore.
The Sigyn field is in production licence 072, where ExxonMobil Exploration and Production Norway is the operator. The field contains gas, condensate and light oil. Production on the field began in 2002.
Sigyn has been developed using a subsea well template. The well stream is transported to the Sleipner A facility 12km northwest of the well template. The field is 222km west of Stavanger and the water depth in the area in 70m.
ExxonMobil has received consent to use the two mobile drilling facilities Island Frontier and Island Wellserver for light well intervention. Activities are scheduled to start in August and last to the end of 2016.
It is uncertain as to which vessel will be used since this depends on optimising the work schedules for the two facilities. The period may also be extended into 2017 if the availability of the facilities so dictates.
