Semi-sub Borgland Dolphin in double drill for Wintershall

Norwegian Petroleum Safety Authority (PSA) has granted consent to Wintershall to drill two exploration wells, in the North Sea, using the Borgland Dolphin drilling rig. 

The two wells, 35/8-6S and 35/8-6A, are located in Wintershall-operated production licence 248, offshore Norway.

According to the safety agency, drilling is scheduled to begin in March 2016 and estimated to last 85 days, depending on whether a discovery is made.

The wells will be drilled by Dolphing Drilling’s 1977-built semi-submersible Borgland Dolphin.

The Aker H-3 rig underwent an extensive upgrade in 1999 and received the Acknowledgement of Compliance (AoC) in September 2004.
