Leiv Eiriksson contract to Westcon

Westcon Yards has been given the contract to prepare the drilling rig Leiv Eiriksson for the Barents Sea.

Ocean Rig has signed a drilling contract with Lundin Norway for use of Leiv Eiriksson in the Barents Sea. After the completion of the contract with Rig Management Norway, the drilling rig has arrived at Westcon Yards in Olen.

«We are very satisfied with winning this project in a demanding market situation. Westcon will prepare the rig for use in the Barents Sea. Among other things, this includes winterization and installation of third party equipment», says Malvin Eide, rig repair manager at Westcon.

At the moment, the rig Polar Pioneer and Henry Goodridge are at the quays. Safe Scandinavia and Borgland Dolphin left Westcon Yards earlier this week.

“We have thus good capacity and constantly looking for more projects», Eide says.
