Island Frontier
(Click to Enlarge)
Statoil ASA has received consent to use the Island Frontier to carry out light well intervention in the Tampen and Halten Nordland areas.

Statoil has applied for consent to use the Island Frontier during the period April 1, 2007 - December 31, 2008. This is an extension of a previous consent.

Light well intervention is cable-based well maintenance in which a cable is sent directly through the sea and down into the well without using a riser, in contrast to when such work is carried out from a mobile drilling facility.

The Island Frontier is a custom-built facility operated by Island Offshore Management AS in Ulsteinvik.
