Deepsea Aberdeen rig starts drilling for BP (UK)

Today, Deepsea Aberdeen started drilling operations under its 7-year contract with BP on the Quad 204 field development project West of Shetland,  UK.

Deepsea Aberdeen is the latest addition to Odfjell  Drilling’s fleet of ultra deepwater and harsh environment mobile offshore drilling units. The rig  was delivered from the DSME yard in South Korea in November 2014.

The start of drilling operations of Deepsea Aberdeen marks another step in the development of Odfjell Drilling’s activities in the UK and harsh environment offshore regions.

According to Odfjell, the rig design is based on more than 40 years’ experience of drilling in the North Sea.

“Our offshore crew and our onshore organisation in UK are looking forward to working collaboratively with BP over the next seven years on the Quad 204 development,” says CEO of Odfjell Drilling, Simen Lieungh.

Deepsea Aberdeen is an enhanced GVA7500 harsh environment design semi-submersible drilling rig. The unit is designed for operations at water depths of up to 3,000 m.
