Due to earlier startup for Lundin rig owner decided to not go in to yard at this time.
Rowan Viking will not go to yard, as the scheduled time before start up is very limited. The good news is that Valaris has contract with Lundin, and GOT can finish the work packages at a fjord on the west coast of Norway.
Our project team is working with Valaris at this time to plan the work to be done on new location.
SVP Thomas Granfeldt Jr. says that it is sad that the rig will not be at our yard at this time, but we work very close with the owner to have most of the work done on at an other location. GOT team is capable to fulfill the jobs without having the rig alongside or at our own yard in Mandal.
Our good cooperation with Valaris prove that we are in their plan for yard stay in the future, and we look forward to the cooperation in the years to come. GOT is open for yard stay with other owners, but have no rig on the way in at this time.
