Offshore drilling contractor Odfjell Drilling has awarded Norway’s Apply a study contract for upgrading the Intervention and Completion unit’s (ICU) circulation and material handling system on Equinor’s Mariner A platform in the UK.

Apply said on Tuesday that the Mariner ICU has been designed to perform many of the functions of a traditional drill rig including; running production tubing, maintaining downhole pumps, and wireline activities.

Equinor has initiated a study to investigate improvements of the ICU systems, related to the fluid circulation and material handling system.

Following the role as drilling supplier on the Mariner A platform for Equinor, the request for a concept study to optimize ICU performance has been awarded to Odfjell Drilling.

Further, following the cooperation agreement recently signed between Odfjell Drilling and Apply, Apply has been chosen as the selected partner to perform the study together with Odfjell Drilling.

The study was initiated in mid-May and a document package will be handed over to the end-client in early October to support the decision gates. The study engages more than 20 engineers within the core disciplines of Apply’s capabilities.
