Songa Offshore announced Thursday that the Songa Enabler (mid-water semisub) will “shortly” be sent to Norway to start an eight year drilling contract with Statoil, commencing on the Snohvit field.
Currently in South Korea, the vessel will arrive in Norway with all third party equipment instaled and ready for final acceptance testing. The commencement of drilling operations is expected to take place in third quarter 2016.
The Songa Enabler is the last rig in a series of four Category-D rigs specifically built for, and contracted to, Statoil.
