MORE WORK FOR DEEPSEA BERGEN ON THE NORWEGIAN CONTINENTAL SHELF
Odfjell Drilling has received a letter of intent from an undisclosed party for further employment for its 3rd generation semi-submersible, Deepsea Bergen, for one firm exploration well plus optional sidetrack and well testing on the Norwegian Continental Shelf (NCS).

Deepsea Bergen is currently operating for Statoil on the NCS until mid- July 2017. In December last year, Odfjell Drilling announced a new contract for Deepsea Bergen with Faroe Petroleum back to back with the said Statoil contract. The contract with Faroe Petroleum is for one well plus one optional well on the Norwegian Continental Shelf. The unit has furthermore received a LOI from OMV Norge for one HPHT-well plus two optional HPHT wells with start-up Q1 2018.
