Weather delays ‘Songa Trym’ comeback

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.

Songa Trym is a semi-submersible drilling rig of the Aker H-3 type, built at Aker Verdal in 1976. Major improvements to the rig were made in 2012. Songa Trym is operated by Songa Management AS of Stavanger. The rig is registered in the Norwegian register of shipping and classified by DVN GL.

Songa Dee and Songa Delta

Songa Dee achieved an operational efficiency of 100% and an earnings efficiency of 99% for the operational part of the month, working for Statoil in Norway. The rig was back on operating day rate from December 26, 2014 after awaiting improved weather conditions to move to the drilling location following completion of the Special Periodic Survey (SPS).

Songa Delta achieved an operational efficiency of 100% and an earnings efficiency of 98% working for Statoil in Norway.
