Norway: Agility Group Bags Design Contract for COSL
Agility Group has inked another contract with China Oilfield Services Limited (COSL) for the basic design of a semi-submersible drilling rig, specifically designed for drilling operations in the South China Sea.
The agreement is the second of its kind with COSL and involves recruitments in both China and Norway.
The drilling rig, tagged COSL5000FT, is based on Agility Group’s A5000 design and is a further development of Agility Group’s GG5000-design, which is currently under construction at the CIMC Raffles yard in Yantai, China for COSL Drilling Europe (CDE).
The drilling rig, with a variable deckload capacity of 5000 tonnes and accommodation for 160 people, will be capable of drilling in water depths of up to 1500 metres, with a maximum drilling depth of up to 9000 metres.
