During a planned disconnection from the well due to deteriorating weather, the drillship West Navigator suffered damages to the BOP (Blow Out Preventor) and the subsea equipment. As a result, the drilling on West Navigator is temporarily halted. The extent of the damages and the subsequent repair time are uncertain at this point.
West Navigator is contracted to Shell for a drilling assignment on the Ormen Lange field on the Norwegian continental shelf.
