Ultra-Deepwater Drillship – Reactivation, 2023

The Drillship was leased to an international drilling contractor, it underwent a meticulous and comprehensive reactivation activity. The project was executed during a 6-month period, culminating in end-customer acceptance. Before the unit began its mobilization, the unit was successfully handed over to the new manager. The project team, in collaboration with ship-crews, undertook a complete SPS (special periodic survey), in addition to reclassification of the 10 k-feet of the marine riser, load-testing all cranes, obtained full re-certification for 2 highly sophisticated subsea Blow-Out-Preventors (BOPs), and performed recertification of the complete dual-activity drilling equipment factory. The Power Management and Control facilities were overhauled and tested, leaving no stone unturned in ensuring the highest standards of safety and efficiency.

Our employees led the project safely and successfully and handed the unit over after completing the successful DP-3 Sea.
