COSL Drilling wins North Sea work with ConocoPhillips, extending its ongoing charter for the COSLRival accommodation barge.

The contract will see ConocoPhillips use the vessel, to supply accommodation to an increased workforce and support services, for a upgrade project on its UK North Sea Judy platform that’s scheduled to start in April 2016.

No value has been given to the contract, but an initial duration of four months has been agreed with an option to extent for a further two months.

Back in January before Conoco was announced as the client, COSL Drilling Europe CEO, Jørgen Arnesen,said: “This continuing assignment strengthens the co-operation between COSL and our client and adds to the long relationship between the companies.”

ConocoPhillips currently has the COSLRival on hire at another British sector platform, the Britannia, supplying the same services. The Britannia contract is due to finish once upgrade work is complete on the 29th February.
