Norwegian operator Statoil is looking to reactivate a suspended rig to carry out well plugging work in the North Sea.
The Scarabeo 5 had previously been suspended by the company from October last year.
According to reports, Statoil has since found work for the rig.
The Scarabeo 5 will plug a well 16kilometres west of the Veslefrikk with the work expected to take around 43 days.
A spokesman for Statoil said the company is also looking to provide the rig with a number of other job possibilities including new wells, workovers and permanent plugging.
Earlier this month it was revealed Statoil planned to reduce spending on the Johan Sverdrup field.
The company’s partner,Det Norske Oljeselskap, said the move was being made as low oil prices continue.
