Calegeo’s DP2 vessel Highland Spirit

Calecore Directors Sarah Cashmore, Steven Lloyd and Richard Parkinson announced the purchase of the geotechnical drill rig installed to the DP2 Highland Spirit, securing Third Month Rotation for Kara Sea Project, Russian Arctic

Earlier this year Calecore took investment from Netherlands based investment company VEP.  VEP’s equity position sees the board of Calecore unchanged but the drill rig purchase is viewed as just the start of bringing significant and key assets to the balance sheet. 

This investment also gives leverage to Calecore’s ever growing global presence with 1 Raffles Quay, Singapore being added to the Stavanger and Moscow bases in September of this year.
