LIMASSOL, Cyprus – Statoil will suspend its contract with the semisubmersible Songa Trym after the rig has completed its current well on the Tarvos prospect in the North Sea.
From early next month the rig will then go on a 75% suspension rate ($283,000/d). Songa Offshore expects a resumption of the program for Statoil in early 2016.
Two of the contractor’s newbuild Cat D rigs remain on course for Norway for the same client.
Songa Equinox, which is en route from South Korea, is currently in Las Palmas, Gran Canaria for crew change, fuelling, and to take onboard Statoil’s remaining third-party equipment.
Songa Endurance, delivered in late August from the same yard, is transiting between Mauritius and Walvis Bay, Namibia.
