ABERDEEN, UK – Awilco Drilling’s semisubmersible WilPhoenix remains at the Able Shipyard in Hartlepool, northeast England, which it entered last November for a five-yearly renewal survey.
Currently the rig is undergoing final project acceptance, and this is delaying its return to operations for Apache North Sea in the UK sector.
Awilco estimates the final cost of the yard stay project at $42.5 million.
The company’s other drilling semi, WilHunter, is hot stacked in Invergordon, northeast Scotland.
