Songa Offshore has informed that the previously suspended semi-submersible rig Songa Trym is expected to continue drilling operations for Statoil within the next week.
Songa Trym was suspended on November 20, 2014 as it was ahead of the drilling schedule, and the rig has been on a 75% suspension rate ($279.000 per day) throughout December.
Songa Offshore informed in December that the rig is expected to resume operations on or about January 1, 2015.
The company now says that Songa Trym is expected to mobilize within the next week depending on weather conditions.
