Fairmount Sherpa tug has towed the Sevan Louisiana rig from from Singapore to Curaçao, an island in the southern Caribbean Sea, off the Venezuelan coast, that forms part of the Dutch Caribbean.
During the 11,500 miles voyage via Cape of Good Hope, stops were made in Port Louis (Mauritius), Walvis Bay (Namibia) and Port of Spain (Trinidad) to take bunkers and for crew changes.
The Sevan Louisiana is an Ultra Deep Water rig (UDW), built in 2013 at the Cosco shipyard in Nantong, China, for Seadrill Ltd. The self-propelled rig, equipped with eight thrusters, can accommodate up to 150 crew members.
After arrival in Curaçao the Fairmount Sherpa performed multiple cargo runs for the Sevan Louisiana. The rig will leave Curaçao on her own thrusters for her next job in the Gulf of Mexico.
The rig will work on a three-year charter contract in the US Gulf of Mexico with LLOG Bluewater Holdings LLC. The total value of the charter contract is in excess of USD 550 million.
