Jackup accommodation to be upgraded for Johan Sverdrup in North Sea

Offshore staff

STAVANGER, NorwayStatoil has contracted Master Marine subsidiary Jacktel to supply accommodation services on the Johan Sverdrup field in the North Sea during the final Phase 1 offshore installation and commissioning period.

Oslo-based Jacktel’s Haven jackup accommodation rig will provide up to 400 beds on the Johan Sverdrup field.

To ensure required capacity for working on the field, Haven will undergo an upgrade related to strength and length of its legs, including provision of new spud-cans/suction-caissons. A Norwegian yard will likely conduct the work.

Jacktel’s contract is for 18 months, starting mid-15 June 2018, with five two-month extension options. Total value of the firm contract period is around $178 million, including the upgrades.

Johan Sverdrup Phase 1 will consist of four installations: a utility and accommodation platform, a processing platform, a drilling platform and a riser platform, with three subsea templates for water injection.
