The award is through Ross Offshore Well Management AS which Claxton will support with equipment delivery.

The exploration programme consists of two fixed and two optional wells to be drilled from the Rowan Vikingjackuprig. For Claxton, the award comes in addition to its support for MOL Norge’s Oppdal–Driva exploration well, which is due to start at the end of October.

Claxton Norway regional manager Vegard Dale said: “Claxton is pleased to be supporting MOL Norge AS on its well programme and is well equipped to provide a wide range of products and services to support operations.

“This project will further strengthen our longstanding partnership with Ross Offshore Well Management AS. We have been working collaboratively through a framework agreement since 2014 and will continue to embark on similar initiatives in the future.”

The well programme is scheduled to start in April 2019 and estimated to last 255 days.
