Well-Safe Solutions has welcomed its newly-acquired Well-Safe Protector rig to a yard in Norway ahead of its move to the UK.
The Aberdeen-headquartered company announced last month that it had bought the West Epsilon jack-up from Seadrill and renamed it the Well-Safe Protector.
It has released footage of the rig arriving at Westcon Yard in Olensvag, Norway for work this month, before heading over to the UK in early November.
Well-Safe aims to have the vessel ready for plug and abandonment work in April 2021.
The company did not reveal the price it paid for the rig, built in 1993, but said the purchase and subsequent upgrade works would run into the tens of millions.
In September, Well-Safe said some upgrade work would take place in Norway, with the remainder at a UK location which was yet to be decided.
The acquisition will also lead to the creation of 100 jobs, Well-Safe said.
Well-Safe bought its first asset, the Well-Safe Guardian semi-submersible, from Diamond Offshore in April 2019.
