The article that you have read the most during this past week was about a jack-up drilling rig, but not just any old jack-up rig, this one was the first ever to drill an offshore well in the UK North Sea.

You have also read about a worker that died in an accident on Saturday morning at Kvaerner’s decommissioning yard at Eldoyane at Stord, Norway.

Furthermore, an article about ConocoPhillips’ decision to cancel the development project for the Tommeliten Alpha discovery, offshore Norway, seemed to spark a lot of interest too.
