SSP Offshore Introduces New Deepwater Drilling Rig Design

SSP Offshore Inc.  today introduced its new offshore drilling platform designated as the “SSP12000”.

“The SSP12000 incorporates the exceptional motion characteristics of the existing SSP proprietary floating platform designs integrated with an industry leading drilling package targeted for the deepwater and ultra-deepwater drilling segments,” said the company in a statement.

The SSP12000 has been designed to drill in water depths of 12,000 feet and offers variable deck load capacity in excess of 30,000 MT. The joint development effort between SSP and a leading supplier of drilling packages is based around a dual derrick system with harsh environment capability and a fully-enclosed moonpool for safe and efficient operations. The SSP12000 also offers full dynamic positioning capabilities.

Paul Illingworth, CEO of SSP, stated that “we believe that the SSP12000 offers a combination of features for the deepwater and ultra-deepwater drilling markets not currently available to the industry along with CAPEX and OPEX efficiencies that will fill an important niche in the market. In addition to its obvious suitability for drilling in West African and Brazilian environments, we believe the SSP12000 offers an ideal solution for the harsher South China Sea, Gulf of Mexico and North Sea drilling markets including arctic projects. We intend to aggressively market this innovative new product to the offshore drilling industry in the upcoming months.”
