The letter of intent forms the basis of the definitive rig agreements between JDC and each of the members of the rig sharing group. The members of the rig sharing group are required to enter into definitive rig agreements with JDC in order to reduce mobilization and demobilization costs.

The Hakuryu-12 rig will be delivered to Trinidad between April 1, 2015 and May 1, 2015.

Dewi Jones, Chief Executive Officer of the Company, said: “This LOI represents the next step in drilling at our 100% owned Corentyne Block. Being a part of the Rig Sharing Group means that CGX Energy will benefit from significantly reduced mobilization and demobilization costs typically associated with offshore drilling. The Hakuryu-12 rig is a jack-up rig that fits the Company’s well design specifications.”
