DAEWOO has awarded Aker Solutions the contract to supply two drilling equipment packages for the category D drilling rigs the South Korean yard is building for Songa Offshore.
Options for two additional units are included.
Development of the two semi-submersible drilling rigs was initiated by Statoil, which awarded long-term contracts to Songa in July. It said that the first two units will be delivered in 2014, with the main deliveries from Aker Solutions taking place in 2012 and 2013. The contract includes topside drilling equipment, procurement, and commissioning.
