Northern Offshore has announced the commencement of drilling operations with Qatargas for the GustoMSC CJ50 jack-up unit, “Energy Enticer”.

The Energy Enticer had a safe and successful mobilisation to Qatar Petroleum’s North Field in early September 2020. The Energy Enticer is the first of three drilling units to commence long-term contracts with Qatargas on behalf of Qatar Petroleum.

TChairman and CEO Dr. Yuanhui Sun stated: “We are very proud to announce this significant milestone in the history of Northern Offshore.

The superior level of commitment shared by our customer, Qatar Petroleum, and Northern Offshore’s rig-based and onshore teams has allowed us to successfully overcome the uncertainty and operational challenges from Covid-19 and focus on delivering the first of our four high specification new build jack-ups into the Middle East region.”
