LONDON – The semisub Leiv Eiriksson is on its way to the Falkland Islands after completing this year’s drilling campaign off Greenland for Cairn Energy.

The rig has been contracted for the upcoming Borders & Southern (B&S) and Falkland Oil & Gas Ltd (FOGL) combined drilling program.

FOGL expects the two B&S wells to take around three months to drill, meaning that the company’s first well on the Loligo prospect will likely spud in late April or early May 2012, followed on completion by its second well.
