Suncor to use ‘Borgland Dolphin’ rig for Norwegian sea well

Suncor Energy Norge AS, a Norwegian subsidiary of Canada’s Suncor, has received consent to drill an exploration well in the Norwegian Sea.

Suncor will drill the 34/4-14 S and A well, located in the production licence 375 in block 34/4. Suncor has applied for consent to drill exploration well 34/4 using Borgland Dolphin semi-submersible drilling rig.

Drilling is planned to begin in January 2015, with a duration of 154 days, depending on whether a discovery is made.

Borgland Dolphin is a semi-submersible drilling facility of the Aker H-3 type. It was built at Harland & Wolff in Belfast, Northern Ireland in 1977 and underwent an extensive upgrade in 1999. The rig is owned by Borgland Dolphin Pte Ltd and operated by Dolphin Drilling A/S. It received Acknowledgement of Compliance (AoC) in September 2004.
