Semi-sub Songa Trym resuming ops in January

Songa Offshore has informed that its semi-submersible drilling rig Songa Trym, which was recently suspended from operations, is expected to resume operations on or about January 1, 2015.

Songa Trym was under the Statoil drilling contract from which it was suspended in November at a 75% suspension rate ($279,000 per day). Songa Offshore said that during the suspension of the rig the company would perform maintenance work on it that is more cost efficiently achieved outside operations.

Songa Trym is a semi-submersible drilling rig of the Aker H-3 type, built at Aker Verdal in 1976. Major improvements to the rig were made in 2012. Songa Trym is operated by Songa Management AS of Stavanger. The rig is registered in the Norwegian register of shipping and classified by DVN GL.

Statoil also recently cancelled a contract for Stena Carron drillship in Angola and extended the suspension times for three offshore drilling rigs.
