In August 2019, Vår Energi received consent to use the Island Constructor well intervention vessel for well intervention on the Goliat field in the Barents Sea.

That consent applied to the drilling of wells 7122/7-C-1 AH and 7122/7-C-4 H in production license 229 with drilling scheduled to begin in September 2019.

The PSA said on Tuesday that the consent was extended to include intervention on wells 7122/7-B-4 Y1H/Y2H, 7122/7-C-3 Y1H/Y2H, 7122/7-C-2 H, and 7122/7-B-3 H.

The 2008-built Island Constructor was designed for well intervention. The vessel is operated by Island Offshore Management, and it received Acknowledgement of Compliance (AoC) in September 2010.

Vår Energi operates PL 229 and the oil-producing Goliat field with an interest of 65 percent, together with Equinor as a partner.
