Island Offshore Sending Two Ships on Draugen Job
Island Offshore has secured work for two of its vessels, Island Valiant and Island Constructor, at the Draugen field for Norske Shell.
Island Valiant will start with IMR work (Inspection, Maintenance and Repair) on three wells in April, preparing the wells for the work which Island Constructor will perform later this summer.
The time frame for this task is about two weeks, the company informed.
The Island Constructor is assigned three jobs with different duration, starting in the early summer with Light Well Intervention (LWI) and scale squeeze on two wells at Draugen. In August/September the vessel will return for two more jobs involving LWI and IMR work.
In total the contracts are worth about NOK 100 million (USD 12 million).
“These contracts are very welcome after a challenging winter with our LWI vessels being laid up for the season. It is very gratifying to see our crews and our vessels mobilizing and returning back to work after the winter,” said Managing Director of Island Offshore, Håvard Ulstein.
