OSLO, Norway – Fred. Olsen Energy has issued an update on its semisubmersible drilling fleet.
Bideford Dolphin continues operations under a three-year drilling contract for Statoil that expires next January.
Early this month the helideck was damaged during a storm and the rig is currently inshore for repairs. The yard-stay should be completed in early March.
Borgland Dolphin has an 18-well drilling contract for a Rig Management Norway-managed consortium of four oil companies. Although currently inshore due to a gap in the drilling schedule, the rig should be back in operation in April.
Last month Bredford Dolphin completed a drilling program for an AGR-led group of four oil companies, and it is currently cold-stacked in Kvinesdal, Norway.
Blackford Dolphin’s 572-day contract for Chevron in the UK sector expires next January.
