Nexen takes Stena rig for North Sea drilling campaign

Offshore driller Stena Drilling has signed a contract with Nexen Petroleum U.K. Limited for the Stena Spey drilling rig. 

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.

“Stena Drilling is very pleased to be working with Nexen Petroleum U.K. Limited and this workscope presents another exciting new opportunity for the Stena Spey and her crew,” the company commented.

The Stena Spey is a semi-submersible drilling rig of a Friede & Goldman L907 design. The 1983-built rig has a SBOP capability for a water depth of 5,000ft using 18 ¾” – 15,000psi Hydril BOP and Vetco MR-6C riser.
