    Northern Offshore collision to cost about US$1 million

    News // July 9, 2004
    Norwegian oil services company Northern Offshore Ltd has confirmed that one of its drilling units collided with a passenger vessel late Sunday morning, resulting in damage to the ship that will take about two weeks to repair and cost US$1 million, including lost revenue.

    The company said the accident occurred while Energy Searcher was sailing from Singapore, where it finished its contract with Rims and was continuing to Indonesia to commence a three-month contract with Medco Langsa Indonesia.

    Northern Offshore said the collision resulted in severe damage, including a hole in one of the tanks.

    The company said it still anticipates it will be able to commence a drilling contract with Medco Langsa Indonesia once Energy Searcher is fully operational.
