Rig operator Songa Offshore announced Monday that maintenance work on, and client acceptance testing of, its Songa Trym (mid-water semisub) rig is now complete. The rig is now on standby while Songa's client, Statoil, undertakes a planned upgrade of its mud system.
Songa Trym will then embark on a three-plus-two year contract with Statoil under direct Songa Offshore management.
Songa said that it was passing an "important milestone" with the Songa Trym finally on contract, with all rigs now operational.
Songa also announced Monday that it has appointed Bjørnar Iversen as new president of Songa Rig AS. Iversen, who is currently CEO at Odfjell Galvão in Brazil, will assume overall responsibility for Songa Rig's commercial relationship with Statoil on the Norwegian Continental Shelf.
