Scarabeo 8 assigned six wells offshore Norway
Saipem has secured drilling contracts from three operators for programs offshore Norway, all for the semisubmersible Scarabeo 8.
The campaign should last around 10 months, excluding options.
A/S Norske Shell has committed to an optional well in relation to a contract assigned last December.
On completion, Total E&P Norge will use the rig to drill one well.
Aker BP has requested four wells, with options for two more. Operations are set to start before year-end.
Saipem has also secured decommissioning work from ConocoPhillips in the UK North Sea.
