Offshore staff

HAMILTON, BermudaNorth Atlantic Drilling Ltd. (NADL) has issued an update on the delivery schedule for the newbuild semisubmersible drilling rig West Rigel.

The company has agreed to a second amendment with Jurong Shipyard in Singapore that extends the standstill period by a further three months to Sept. 2.

This will allow both sides to continue to seek commercial opportunities for the rig.

If they are unsuccessful, they plan to form a joint asset holding company for the unit, with NADL owning 23% and Jurong 77%.
