Odfjell Drilling semisub awarded more work with Equinor

Norwegian energy major Equinor has exercised further work to be added to Odfjell Drilling’s contract for the semisub rig Deepsea Stavanger.

Following this addition, the 2010-built rig now has six remaining wells to be drilled, which are expected to occupy the unit into Q2 2023.

The value of the additional work is similar to the current contract, which includes a performance incentive rate that will apply when wells are delivered safely and ahead of target. Integrated services are provided through the contract and compensated separately.

The option has been exercised under the continued optionality mechanism in the contract entered into between the parties last May as part of the overall master frame agreement. Equinor has the opportunity to exercise further wells.
