Bideford Dolphin Heads to Stavanger for Repairs

Preparations are being made to move the Bideford Dolphin to the Kvaerner Rosenberg yard at Stavanger where further inspection and repair work will take place. Another minor crack in the same area as one of the previous cracks has been identified, but no expansions of the cracks are expected. The drilling operation has now been suspended after the well has been secured and de-manning of the rig has commenced. The tow to shore is expected to start during the night to December 7th.
