Offshore Rig Contracts Go to Saipem
Saipem has won a pair of offshore drilling contracts in Norway and the Middle East totalling more than US$ 100 million, the company reported Monday.
One of the contracts is with Repsol Norge AS and calls for drilling a well for operations in Norway set to begin during the third quarter of this year, Saipem noted in a written statement emailed to Rigzone. Saipem added that its semisubmersible Scarabeo 8 drilling unit will be deployed for the contract.
The other drilling contract, awarded for a three-year-term, calls on Saipem to deploy a high-specification jack-up in the Middle East, the company stated. Although Saipem did not specify the customer’s name, it stated that operations tied to the jack-up contract should begin during the fourth quarter of this year.
