A rig that was hit by a giant wave in 2015, leading to the death of a worker, has been hired to drill a well off Norway.
The COSL Innovator will start work on a drilling campaign for Lundin Norway in March 2018.
COSL Drilling Europe said it would drill one well and that there was an option for eight wells.
The rig is currently in warm stack at CCB outside of Bergen.
COSL Drilling Europe chief executive Jorgen Arnesen said: “This is another fantastic news to give our organization.
“We are proud and humbled to be trusted by one of the most expansive companies on the NCS, and look forward to developing a strong and long-term relationship with Lundin.”
Offshore worker Rune Morten Narvag, 53, was killed when 100ft high waves hit the Troll field on December 30, 2015.
In March 2016, COSL said it had been forced to lay off 230 workers after Statoil cancelled a contract with the company.
Last week, COSL announced a letter of intent with Nexen Petroleum for the use of COSLPioneer in the UK North Sea.
