Awilco Drilling PLC: Nordic Winter Update

Reference is made to our stock exchange release dated 8 June 2020 advising that Awilco Rig 1 Pte. Ltd. (AR1) has exercised its right to terminate the building contract with Keppel FELS Limited (KFELS) and is entitled to a refund of the instalments paid to KFELS plus accrued interest. KFELS has disputed that AR1 had the right to terminate.

Today AR1 has received a notice from KFELS purporting to terminate for failure to pay the next instalment due, and notice that KFELS has commenced arbitration to resolve the disputes concerning termination and its consequences. AR1 maintains its position that it validly terminated the contract and maintains its entitlement to the instalments.
