The offshore rig Huldra, put out for the grand sum of one Norwegian krone, seems to have found a new owner.

In the classified ad on Internet site finn.no, the 12 year old platform prospect was characterised as having sea view and twenty bedrooms.

What seemed like a gimmick to save costs of scrapping the rig seems to have materialised into an actual sale a year and a half later, however.

Statoil has now called for a meeting with the government to discuss the sales process of the rig, according to publication Teknisk Ukeblad.

The Huldra rig has been uninhabited apart from maintenance teams since its production start in 2001, despite its 20 bedrooms.

It is due to finish its production by the first quarter of 2014, with an additional three years to plug the wells before the platform can be moved to another location.

Statoil has given no indication as to who the potential buyer is.
