North Atlantic Drilling has awarded Apply Oil & Gas (AOG) a contract for the construction of 20 new single occupancy cabins on board the West Epsilon jack-up rig.
Apply AOG received the letter of intent in the beginning of January and engineering work started immediately. Vice president for AOG, Morten Solland, says that the company has been allocated a limited area on board the rig and the design has necessitated some modifications as a result.
The module will be produced in two parts, fitted together before being sent offshore for installation. Installation will take place in June/July and before the readying of Gudrun field in the Norwegian part of the North Sea, of which West Epsilon is part.
