Northern Offshore announced on Wednesday (Oct 14) the commencement of drilling operations with Qatargas for the GustoMSC CJ50 jack-up unit, Energy Enticer. The Energy Enticer had a safe and successful mobilization to Qatar Petroleum’s North Field in early September 2020 despite recent global industry challenges.
