 COSCO Corp (Singapore) will refund $26.3 million, or 5 percent of the contract price, plus associated interest to Sevan Drilling by December 1, 2015.

 
Sevan Drilling and Cosco have agreed to exercise the first six-month option to extend the deferral agreement to April 15, 2016. 
 
The final delivery instalment has been amended to $447.1 million, representing 85 percent of the $526 million contract price and can be amended further upon the expiration of the option period.
 
The company first announced winning of the contract back in May 2011. In between, the industry went into a down turn that is persisting until now.
 
In October 2014, Sevan and Cosco reached an agreement to extend the delivery date for 12 months, with options that could be exercised at six-month intervals, such that the delivery date can be extended by up to 36 months from October 15 2014.
 
“In view of the deferment and the uncertainty as to whether the remaining options will be exercised, it is not possible to ascertain the financial impact of the agreement for deferment at this point in time,” the company announced.
