Northern Drilling newbuild semi-submersible finds work with Lundin

Offshore driller Northern Drilling, part of John Fredriksen’s Seadrill, has secured a contract for newbuild semi-submersible rig West Bollsta.

The Hyundai Heavy-built rig will perform a ten-well program which includes the development of the Luno II field and the Rolvsnes discovery in the Norwegian North Sea.

The contract was executed between Lundin and Seadrill, and Northern Drilling has entered into an agreement with Seadrill to mobilise and manage the operations of the rig.

The contract, which includes four additional one-well options, is scheduled to commence in the second quarter of 2020.
