The deal, from an undisclosed party, includes options for two additional HPHT wells.
The contract is scheduled to start in Q1 2018 and has an expected duration of approximately 100 days (excluding options).
Deepsea Bergen is currently operating for Statoil on the NCS until mid-July 2017.
In December last year, Odfjell Drilling announced a new one-well contract for Deepsea Bergen with Faroe Petroleum back to back with the said Statoil contract.
