'Ocean Victory' arrives in Trinidad for BP contract

BP Trinidad and Tobago LLC (“BP”) has announced that the Ocean Victory semi-submersible drilling rig, owned and operated by Diamond Offshore Drilling Inc (“Diamond”), has arrived in Trinidad and Tobago after mobilising from the USA. The unit will now take on personnel, equipment and supplies, before moving to the offshore location of the Juniper field located 50 miles off the south east coast of Trinidad, where it is expected to commence drilling operations in mid-May. The Juniper project is BP’s first in subsea field development in Trinidad and will have a production capacity of approximately 590 million standard cubic feet a day (mmscfd). First gas from the facility is expected in 2017. The rig, which is capable of drilling to total depths of up to 25,000 feet, and in water depths of up to 6,000 feet, is under contract for an initial term of two years. It is expected to drill 5 subsea wells which will be tied into the Juniper platform. Ocean Victory has travelled 2,168 nautical marine miles in 23 days from Mississippi, US. This will be the third rig in operation on BP’s offshore facilities in Trinidad, joining the SKD Jaya and the Rowan EXL II.
