PHOTO: Henry Goodrich drilling rig reaches Canadian waters

Henry Goodrich semi reaches Canadian watersTransocean’s Henry Goodrich semi-submersible drilling rig has reached Canadian waters, following the trans-Atlantic journey from Norway.

The image shows the yellow drilling giant reaching Grand Banks, off Newfoundland, Canada, with the ALP Winger on bridle and the Maersk Detector and Maersk Dispatcher tugs alongside.

According Gordon Munro, the Tow Master on the Henry Goodrich, the rig is not on final location yet “but we hope to run anchors there at weekend.”

The rig reached Grand Banks on Sunday morning around 8:00 local time. The image was taken by Kees Pronk, Chief Officer on the ALP Winger ocean going tug.

The Henry Goodrich, which left Norway on April 10, will be used by the Canadian energy company Husky Energy at the White Rose oil field development project, some 350 kilometers off the coast of Newfoundland.

Husky signed the contract for the rig with Transocean in December 2015, after it had been idle for months in Norway. The rig’s dayrate has been set at $275,000.  The Henry Goodrich is expected to start operations in the second quarter of 2016.
