West Alpha returns to Ølensvåg

Intermediate inspection and modification
Westcon Yard has received a Letter of Intent from North Atlantic Drilling (a company partially owned by Seadrill) for work on the submersible rig West Alpha, in the third quarter of 2012. The work includes intermediate inspection and various modification works to prepare the rig for a new contract with ExxonMobil on the Balder field. West Alpha will bore two wells, a job which has an anticipated value of US$100 million, and will have an option for drilling a further four wells.

Westcon looks forward to welcoming the rig back to the yard.
