COSL Drilling Europe AS has received a letter of intent (LOI) from Nexen Petroleum U.K. Limited to carry out plugging and abandonment work at the Ettrick and Blackbird fields in UK.

The work will be conducted by a semi-submersible rig, COSLPioneer. The scope of the work includes 13 wells with a fixed duration of around 12 months.

COSLPioneer is a sixth generation DP3 unit that is currently located in Norway at the CCB yard. The rig received its safety case in UK Safety Authorities from the Health & Safety Executive in March of this year, allowing it to mobilise and commence work in the UK in 1Q18.

"COSL is very pleased with Nexen's intentions and we look forward to commencing work for one of the major oil companies in UK", says COSL Drilling Europe's CEO, Jørgen Arneesen.
