BP exercises options on Dolphin Drilling semi-submersible

Fred. Olsen Energy subsidiary Dolphin Drilling has been awarded extra work for 1974-built semi-submersible rig Blackford Dolphin, after BP exercised two of four options as part of a contract announced last month.

The semi-submersible came out of layup for the campaign, which was originally for one well in the UK North Sea.
The two options are estimated to take around 60 days and are worth £5.9m ($8.2m).
