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

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.
