Continued optionality under frame agreement

The rig is equipped for ATA mooring from 100 meters – 500 meters, and can operate in DP mode in 300 m – 2000m water. The rig has a large deck area, and capacities for efficient development drilling and completion. The derrick hoisting capacity is 1250 ton, and the 1200 ton setback capacity can store drillstrings and casings which are prepared offline. The derrick hoisting system is the “dual drawwork system”, same as the Deepsea Atlantic /Stavanger /Aberdeen. This provides fast, redundant hoisting and redundant active compensating.

Large deck and tank capacities for drilling fluid, brine and base oil ensure reduced need for supplies. The rig is built to DNV Class requirements, and designed for worldwide operations. It meet the latest NMD and PSA regulations and UK HSE.
