Offshore driller Rowan has secured a drilling contract for Rowan Viking with Shell UK Limited for plugging and abandonment work in the UK.

The N-Class ultra-harsh environment jack-up rig will carry out a five-well program on the Goldeneye platform in the Central North Sea which ceased production in 2011.

The contract is expected to start in June 2018 and continue for approximately 100 days, following completion of the Rowan Viking’s current project with Lundin in Norway.

Tom Burke, President, and Chief Executive Officer, said: “The Goldeneye contract further strengthens our relationship with Shell and we are pleased with the added backlog for one of our ultra-harsh environment jack-ups. We are collaborating closely with our customer to deliver safe, efficient and reliable operations.”
