Northern Ocean Ltd (the “Company” or “NOL”) has agreed to an amendment of the West Bollsta drilling contract with Lundin Energy Norway AS deferring the commencement of drilling activities to early fourth quarter 2020.
During the idle period the rig will remain in Norway and compensation for operating costs will be provided until commencement of drilling activities.
Considering the current market conditions and impacts from the global COVID-19 pandemic, the amendment reflects commitment from both Parties to find acceptable solutions for delays and the West Bollsta remains a part of Lundin’s long term drilling program.
