Statoil has awarded Jacktel a $178million contract for Johan Sverdrup’s accommodation rig.
The 18-month contract covers the installation and commissioning for the development’s phase one period.
The mammoth accommodation facility will provide up to 400 beds on the Johan Sverdrup field.
“We are very pleased with the contract awarded to Jacktel AS. The Haven jack-up accommodation rig will be an important tool in the final offshore installation and commissioning phase, putting together the different pieces of the Johan Sverdrup puzzle,” said Kjetel Digre, senior vice president for the Johan Sverdrup development project.
Jacktel AS, a wholly owned subsidiary of Master Marine A, located in Oslo, Norway, will also oversee an upgrade process which will target the facility’s strength, including provision of new spud-cans/suction-caissons.
The work will be carried out in a yard in Norway.
The contract includes a further five, two-month extensions if needed.
Johan Sverdrup’s phase one development will include four installations, including a utility and accommodation platform, a processing platform, a drilling platform and a riser platform, in addition to three subsea templates for water injection.
