Boa’s vessel duo wins rig-moving deal from Wintershall

Boa, a Norwegian provider of offshore services, has won a rig-moving contract for two of its vessels from German oil company Wintershall. 

Boa’s two vessels will be assigned to complete the move of the Borgland Dolphin semi-submersible drilling rig currently working offshore Norway.

The vessels involved will be two anchor handling tug and supply (AHTS) vessels, the Boa Bison and Boa Jarl. The company added that the Boa Bison will also provide ROV-services.

The rig-move contract, according to Boa, will begin on June 18 but the duration of the contract was undisclosed.

The Borgland Dolphin semi-submersible, built in 1977, is an Aker H-3 type rig which underwent an extensive upgrade in 1999 and received the Acknowledgement of Compliance (AoC) in September 2004.

The two AHTS vessels recently completed rig-move work for Statoil. The Boa Jarl completed a rig-move contract for the Songa Dee semi-submersible rig from June 4 – 10 while the Boa Bison moved the Deepsea Bergen semi-submersible from June 5 – 11.
