Signal International Announces Contract to Upgrade Semisubmersible

Signal International has been awarded a contract for the repair and upgrade of the Transocean semisubmersible rig, Henry Goodrich. The project is slated to commence early December 2011 at Signal’s east yard facility in Pascagoula, Mississippi, for a seventy-day out-of-service time frame. The scope of work includes overall repairs, upgrades and refurbishments of the rig. In addition to the removal, renewal and replacement of major equipment; Signal will also be upgrading the crew accommodations, expanding the lifeboat capacity, and renewing the coatings and piping. With prefabrication work underway, the project will enable Signal to employ an additional 300 craft personnel at the yard during peak production. Dick Marler, President and CEO of Signal International, noted the East yard recently completed the upgrade of Transocean’s Deepwater Navigator. “We’ve enjoyed a long-standing relationship with Transocean,” Marler stated, “which has been built upon our ability to meet their standards for manufacturing excellence, speed of delivery, safe performance and overall project cost.”

Discovery offshore Newfoundland

StatoilHydro Canada has made a discovery in the Flemish Pass Basin, offshore Newfoundland. Hydrocarbons were encountered while drilling the deepwater Mizzen prospect (EL 1049), located approximately 500 kilometres east-northeast of St John’s, Newfoundland. Further analysis of the well results will be undertaken to determine the potential, and an application for a Significant Discovery License (SDL) will be filed over the coming months. “The drilling operation, conducted at a water depth of 1,100 metres and during the heart of the North Atlantic winter storm season, was very challenging,” says Erik Abrahamsen, StatoilHydro Canada’s vice president of East Coast Operations. “We are very pleased with the way that the rig, its crew and the local supply community successfully met the challenges.” StatoilHydro is the operator of Mizzen with a 65% working interest. Husky Energy Inc. participated in the drilling of the well for a 35% interest. StatoilHydro currently owns interests in several exploration, development and production licences offshore Newfoundland. The group is also a partner in the Hibernia and Terra Nova fields as well as a partner in developing the Hebron field.

First offshore drilling in Canada as operator

StatoilHydro will drill its first offshore prospect as operator in Canada in the fourth quarter of 2008, at the Mizzen prospect off the east coast of Newfoundland and Labrador. The Transocean rig, Henry Goodrich, has been secured for the operation. The Mizzen prospect is located in block EL 1049 in the Flemish Pass Basin offshore Newfoundland and Labrador in 1,100 metres water depth. StatoilHydro has signed an agreement whereby Husky Energy will participate in the exploration well. Under the agreement Husky Energy will earn a 35% interest in Mizzen. "We are very excited about starting drilling operations offshore Canada," says Geir Jøssang, head of StatoilHydro Canada. "Canada is becoming an important contributor to StatoilHydro’s international portfolio,” he adds. StatoilHydro just signed a rig sharing contract with Petro-Canada and Husky, bringing the Transocean-operated Henry Goodrich rig to the east coast of Canada. The rig is expected to arrive in Newfoundland this summer. “The Flemish Pass Basin is a new and almost unexplored area on Canada’s east coast,” explains Johan K. Mikkelsen, head of StatoilHydro’s offshore business in Canada. “We are already participating in production from the Terra Nova and Hibernia fields and we have learned a lot from our partners in the 12 years we have been in Canada, and now look forward to preparing for our own drilling operations here,” he adds.
