Stena said on Tuesday that the drilling campaign will last around 110 days with a potential additional option well on the Golden Eagle field, UK Central North Sea.

The contract will start on completion of the current well with Repsol-Sinopec Resources UK.

The driller has not revealed the value of the contract for the Stena Spey rig.
