The following events are related to associates of Ganger Rolf ASA:
On 22 October, Bollsta Dolphin Pte. Ltd., subsidiary of Fred. Olsen Energy ASA, received a notice of arbitration from Hyundai Heavy Industries Co. Ltd. (HHI). HHI alleges that it is entitled to an additional payment of about MUSD 167 and additional time to complete and deliver Bollsta Dolphin. The claim is considered to be without merit; principally because the construction contract is a so called turn-key delivery for a pre-agreed price. The contract also contains a specific variation order regime dealing with any adjustments or modifications. The amount of variations are negligible.
The construction of the unit was substantially delayed and Bollsta Dolphin Ptl. Ltd therefore decided to exercise its contractual right to terminate the construction contract with HHI. In connection with this termination, Chevron North Sea Limited and Dolphin Drilling Ltd. in good faith agreed on amicable terms to terminate the drilling contract under which the newbuilding was supposed to operate.
