Aqualis Offshore completes 'Jindal Star' rig move

New offshore marine and engineering consultancy Aqualis offshore continues to extend its global offering and has taken significant expansion strides by entering the Indian offshore market and completing its first rig moving operation in the region. Staff from Aqualis Offshore’s Dubai office last week successfully moved its first jack-up rig in India. The ‘Jindal Star’, a new build MLT 116 E, was towed from Lamprell’s shipyard in UAE to an ONGC platform location offshore the west coast of India. Attendance on a second Aban Offshore unit for an infield move was completed shortly afterwards. “This is a major leap forward in our efforts in India. One of our key differentiators is that the company consists solely of experienced personnel who have seen plenty of action offshore. This is what our customers want when they are managing high value assets and projects,” adds David Wells. Aqualis Offshore is a specialized marine and offshore engineering consultancy focusing on the shallow and deep-water offshore segments of the oil and gas industry. Its core services include concept, FEED and basic design engineering for rigs and fixed offshore installations, for upgrades and conversions of jack ups, rig moving, marine warranty, dynamic positioning and construction supervision services. The company also offers transportation and installation as well as due diligence services.
