FROM HALIFAX: Ready for oil exploration in the North
Sea, this Halifax-built semisubmersible, Sedneth 701, is shown undergoing tests for its thrusters in Halifax Har- bor. The unit is one of six semisubmersibles for the oil in- dustry, either built by or on order with the Halifax Ship- yards. Sedneth 701 will be delivered to its owners, Neder- landse Zeebormaatschappij B.V. (Sea Drilling Nether- lands).
