HAMILTON, Bermuda – Northern Offshore (Oslo Børs: NOF.OL) is seeking contracts for three currently idle drilling rigs fleet.

Last month the semisubmersibleEnergy Driller concluded a three-year contract with ONGC. It has since moved to a stacking location in Bahrain where it will remain while the company pursues further opportunities in the Asia/Pacific region.

Last week the jackupEnergy Endeavour finished its drilling program for Wintershall. The rig has relocated to Rotterdam and is available for immediate employment.

The drillshipEnergy Searcher, which finished a contract off Nigeria, is being marketed to the Middle East/Asia Pacific region, at a lower-cost layup location.
