Some good news for Bull Arm and local company, DF Barnes.
The local contractor has been awarded a contract by Seadrill that will bring the ultra-deepwater semi-submersible drilling rig, the West Aquarius, to the Bull Arm Fabrication Site.
Nalcor Energy-Bull Arm Fabrication has signed a short-term agreement with DF Barnes that will see work begin in December at the site and continue into the spring.
Separate from the short-term agreement, a Request for Proposal process is ongoing as part of Nalcor’s planning for the future use of the site. A decision is pending as discussion continue with two proponents – DF Barnes and Canadian Supply Base Company in an effort to maximize site use.
