Norwegian shipping company Island Offshore has announced that its vessel Island Constructor has been awarded a contract by BP.
According to the shipping company, the contract is for the provision of light well intervention services on the UK continental shelf in July this year.
Island Offshore did not reveal further details about the contract except that additional options might be exercised in August.
The company’s 2008-built riserless, well intervention vessel recently departed Norway en route to the Oyo field, offshore Nigeria. The vessel will be used for LWI service on Erin Energy’s Oyo-8 well. Erin Energy plans to complete the intervention in April, and the vessel is anticipated to arrive on the Oyo field mid-April.
In addition, Island Constructor was recently awarded a contract by the oil major Shell to work on Draugen oilfield, offshore Norway.
