November 19   |   COSLProspector   |   4,921 ft.   Semisub
CIMC Raffles delivered the COSLProspector (DW semisub) to China Oilfield Services Ltd. This is the fourth in a newbuild program that began in 2005. Classed by DNV and CCS, the unit is designed to work in operating temperatures of minus 20 degrees Celsius in arctic areas such as the Barents and Norwegian Seas. The rig will now undergo acceptance testing which is expected to last into early 2015. COSL initially marketed this rig for work in the North Sea. However, with the slowdown in activity it appears that the rig will likely go to work offshore China.
