Archer, Buccaneer part ways

Buccaneer Energy-Kenai Off-shore Ventures and Archer Drilling last Thursday ended their relationship for Archer to operate the $100 million Endeavour-Spirit of Independence jack-up rig. The rig has been in the Homer Harbor since arriving last August, missing a late-summer and early fall drilling window and racking up a large bill in harbor fees.

Buccaneer said it fired Archer. On Wednesday, officials with Archer visiting Homer said that’s not true — Archer terminated its contract with Buccaneer on Dec. 13.
