JU Maersk Resilient installed in Dutch Sector
Offshore Marine Contractors BV (OMC), in close co-operation with operator Petrogas and owners Maersk Drilling, towed and installed the high spec drilling rig Maersk Resilient successfully in the Dutch sector.
The rigmove of the jack up from the Scottish port of Invergordon started in the afternoon of Monday November 2nd under guidance of AHTS Maersk Handler (197 tbp) and Fairplay 31 (90 tbp). Manoeuvring assistance within Invergordon was provided by Strathdee of Caledonian Towage. After a 320 nm tow, the convoy arrived at the offshore B/13-A platform on the 6th of November where the 63 tbp tractor tug Bugsier 3 was standby to assist in manoeuvring the unit alongside the production platform.
After the anchor deployment the unit was installed at a close positioning tolerance a day later, where the 3-legged drilling unit prepares for the upcoming drilling operations.
