Report: Odfjell Drilling finds more work for Deepsea Bergen rig

Norway-based offshore driller Odfjell Drilling has reportedly won two charters for one of its semi-submersible drilling rigs.

According to information provided by VesselsValue, a website providing intel on offshore and shipping world, Odfjell Drilling has won two back-to-back deals for its Deepsea Bergen semi-sub.

The first one is a four-month charter with Norwegian oil major Statoil. The deal is scheduled to begin on April 1 and end on August 1.

It is worth mentioning that, back in May 2017, the Deepsea Bergen was awarded a $55 million contract by Statoil, which included one firm well plus 4 x 3 optional wells,

In December 2017, Statoil exercised its first option in the rig’s drilling contract, adjusted to two firm wells. In January this year, Statoil exercised the second of four options for three wells. The second option was in direct continuation of the first and with a duration of 75 days each.

As for the second charter, VesselsValue stated that the deal was for two months, plus a two-well option, with an undisclosed charterer. The charter, VV reveals, is set to begin on August 2 and end on September 30. According to the website, both deals were made on Tuesday, March 20.

Deepsea Bergen is a semi-submersible drilling rig of the Aker H-3.2 type, built at Aker Verdal in 1983. Owned and operated by Odfjell Drilling, the semi-sub is classified by DNV GL and registered in Norway. Current AIS data puts the rig offshore Norway.

Offshore Energy Today has reached out to Statoil and Odfjell for confirmation of the above info and we will update the article if and when we receive a response.

A Statoil spokesperson told Offshore Energy Today in an email that the company does not “wish to comment on industry websites information on rig contracts.”
