Rowan announces contract with Shell for Rowan Viking jackup

Rowan Companies has announced that the Rowan Viking, an N-Class ultra-harsh environment jackup rig, has been awarded a five-well program by Shell UK for plugging and abandonment work on the Goldeneye platform in the Central North Sea.

The contract is expected to commence in June 2018 and continue for approximately 100 days, following completion of the Rowan Viking’s current project with Lundin in Norway.

“The Goldeneye contract further strengthens our relationship with Shell, and we are pleased with the added backlog for one of our ultra-harsh environment jackups,” Tom Burke, President and Chief Executive Officer, commented. “We are collaborating closely with our customer to deliver safe, efficient and reliable operations.”
