Odfjell Drilling and Total South Africa have agreed that the semi-submersible Deepsea Stavanger will remain idle in Norway for a period prior to the mobilisation of the rig, due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

The idle agreement is a reflection of both parties’ commitment to proceed with the South Africa drilling programme.
