COSL wins lawsuit against Statoil

China Oilfield Service (COSL) has announced that Oslo City Court has ruled in the company’s favour in a lawsuit against Norwegian energy firm Statoil.

COSL filed the lawsuit against Statoil in December 2016 due to a dispute regarding the termination of the drilling contract  COSL Innovator after the rig was hit by a storm on the Troll field.

The court has ruled that Statoil’s termination of the contract was unlawful and ordered Statoil to pay cancellation fee under the contract.
