GSP announces commencement of GoM drilling operations with a third MODU

GSP Offshore has announced that the company’s ‘GSP Fortuna’ jackup rig has begun its drilling contract in the Gulf of Mexico (GoM) for the Mexican operator Pemex on a 894 day contract. The ‘GSP Fortuna’ is GSP’s third mobile offshore drilling unit working for Pemex in Mexico alongside the company’s ‘GSP Atlas’ and ‘GSP Orizont’ units. In order to support the offshore operations in the GoM, GSP has established the representative office GSP Offshore Mexico and an operational base in Ciudad del Carmen, providing local coordination and support for all Mexican offshore operations. Previously GSP Fortuna has carried out a drilling campaign in the sea region of Kavala Gulf, in the Prinos oil field, northern Greece for Energean Oil & Gas.
