Songa Offshore Rig Suffers Engine Failure
OSLO, Oct 20 (Reuters) – Norwegian offshore driller Songa Offshore suffered an engine failure on its Songa Dee rig during a yard stay and the vessel will not leave the yard until Nov. 7, later than originally expected, it said on Monday.
The firm added that the rig has achieved its certification on hull and structure during a Special Periodic Survey and its blowout preventer has been overhauled.
The rig's survey, which started on Aug. 24, was scheduled for 60 days and it was seen back in operation by late October.
