MEO advised that as at 06:00 hours (Perth time) on Wednesday Nov. 17, the Songa Venus semi-submersible drilling rig had been towed a distance of 181.7 nautical miles or 28.1% of the 646.7 nautical mile journey to the Artemis-1 location.

Assuming the average speed achieved on the journey to date is maintained, the rig is anticipated to arrive at the Artemis-1 location late on Nov. 23, however the actual tow speed achieved will be a function of the prevailing weather and sea state conditions.

Artemis-1 is anticipated to spud shortly after being anchored on location.
