On October 1st Island Offshore and MLS signed a contract for the Island Crusader. The contract commitment is for one well firm, and the end client Maersk Oil Norway. The vessel will be supporting the SS Transocean Barents for the Albert test drilling campaign. After the Albert campaign, the SS Transocean Barents will relocate to the Barents Sea and hence the Island Crusader will follow the rig and undertake a contract with Repsol Exploration Norge for one well firm.
The Owners are pleased to get back-to-back contracts with MLS and look forward to working with Repsol.
