MSS1 to Invergordon

Semco Maritime has won a contract with Paragon Offshore for intermediate classification and service works on the SemiSub Drilling Rig Paragon MSS1. The service works will be performed at Semco Maritime’s rig facilities at Invergordon, Scotland, over an estimated period of 60 days. According to head of Semco Maritime Rig Projects, Senior Vice President Lars Skov, Semco Maritime was chosen due to its strategically located rig facilities at Invergordon, Hanøytangen (Norway) and Esbjerg (Denmark), together forming the North Sea rig triangle operated by Semco Maritime. “Our three strategically located hot spots in UK, Norway and Denmark offer the kind of flexibility, convenience and cost-efficiency that many of our rig clients are looking for in the current market”, says Lars Skov, while he first and foremost ascribes the order to Semco Maritime’s broad experience within rig service. Besides Invergordon, Semco Maritime rig facilities comprise yard facilities in Esbjerg (typically minor rig projects) as well as Hanøytangen, Norway, with an all-size dry dock and quay depths of more than 100 meters.

'Noble Ton Van Langeveld' semisub spuds new production well

Atlantic Petroleum (Atlantic) today announced that the Blackbird Field’s second production well has been spudded using Noble Drilling’s ‘Noble Ton V Langeveld’ drilling rig. The Blackbird Field is owned by Nexen Petroleum U.K. Limited (Operator) 73.02957%, Nexen Ettrick U.K. Limited 17.57270% and Atlantic Petroleum UK Limited 9.39773%. The Blackbird field was discovered in 2008 and has been in production since 2011. The field currently consists of one subsea producer and one water injector tied back to the Aoka Mizu FPSO (which also handles the Ettrick Field production). Oil is exported by shuttle tanker and gas exported to the St Fergus gas terminal. The well is expected to be in production in early Q3 2014 and provide a significant production boost for the Field. The base case production from the well is included in the Atlantic Petroleum production guidance for 2014. The investment in the well qualifies for the Brown Field Allowance under the UK taxation system.
