Scarabeo 8 Rig Gets Clearance to Operate in Norway

PSA Norway, the government’s body responsible for safety, emergency preparedness and the working environment in the petroleum activities in Norway, has granted Saipem an Acknowledgement of Compliance (AoC) for the Scarabeo offshore drilling rig.

Scarabeo 8 is a semi-submersible drilling rig with a Moss CS 50 MkII design. It was built at the Fincantieri Shipyard in Palermo, Italy and completed at Westcon’s shipyard in Ølensvåg in Hordaland in 2011.

The rig is designed to operate in water depths from 70 to 3050 metres. Scarabeo 8, equipped for operations in Arctic waters, is owned and operated by Saipem SpA Norwegian Branch.

The facility is registered in the Bahamas and Det Norske Veritas is the classification society.

An AoC is a statement from the PSA which expresses the authorities’ confidence that petroleum activity can be carried out with the facility within the regulatory framework.

It is the assessment of the PSA that petroleum activity can be carried using the Scarabeo 8 facility within the regulatory framework. The decision is based on information provided in the AoC application regarding the facility’s technical condition and the applicant’s organisation and management system, as well as the authorities’ verifications and other case processing.

The validity of the Acknowledgement of Compliance assumes that Saipem SpA Norwegian Branch ensures the facility and relevant parts of the company’s organisation and management system satisfy regulatory requirements, and that terms and assumptions in the PSA’s decision are safeguarded.
