Awilco Drilling says that contract negotiations are close to completion with the undisclosed client, which has signed a letter of intent (LOI) for provision of MDW semi WilPhoenix (1,200') for work later this year. Start-up of the minimum 450-day contract is expected around 1 September and this will keep the unit working in the North Sea until at least November 2019. The rig was released by Apache in late April and is now hot stacked in Invergordon, UK, and is being marketed for summer work programs. There are various semi requirements outstanding for the UK North Sea including Dana Petroleum's drilling campaign at the Arran field in block 23/11.

Further to a RigLogix report from 28 March, Northern Drilling has signed contracts to buy two newbuild ultra-deepwater drillships from Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering (DSME) for $296 million per unit. The two units known as West Aquila and West Libra, were originally ordered by Seadrill and are now being sold for around half of the original cost. Northern Drilling will pay $90 million per unit at the contract signing and the remainder will be paid upon delivery. Expected delivery is January and March 2021, with flexible delivery schedule and option to take earlier delivery.

In addition, the company has an option to acquire a third drillship - Cobalt Explorer - from DSME at a purchase price of $350 million, with the option period expiring in six months. This unit was originally ordered from the yard by Vantage Drilling, but the construction contract was later terminated.

Northern Drilling is now considering a private placement of new shares for gross proceeds of around $250 million, with the net proceeds to be used to partially fund installments on the acquired drilling units and for general corporate purposes. The company's largest shareholder - Hemen Holding - a company indirectly controlled by trusts of John Fredriksen for the benefit of his immediate family will be allocated shares of around $75 million in the private placement.
