Offshore support specialist Viking SeaTech has completed full rig positioning services in Western Australia.
The contract becomes the latest in a line of projects successfully carried out by Viking SeaTech Survey. The team positioned a semi-submersible mobile offshore drilling unit for work on the Schooner-1 well, which is located 426km north of Broome and 48km west of Browse Island.
Matthew Gordon, General Manager, Viking SeaTech Survey, said: “We were delighted to secure this significant contact. It was a chance for us to lead on a full rig positioning contract from conception to completion. This work came on the back of the recent successful collaboration between Viking SeaTech and a major operator off the northern tip of Australia.”
Chris Forde, Managing Director Asia Pacific, Viking SeaTech, said: “We’re proud to have worked with another major operator in Western Australia. It is testament to the relationships we continue to build with our customers. We believe investment in our management systems, our people and our equipment has provided further confidence in Viking SeaTech.”
Bill Bayliss, Group Chief Executive, Viking SeaTech, said: “Our ever-growing experience and the strengths of our personnel have brought another contract to completion successfully and safely. However, we will not be complacent. We will continue to grow by winning new business globally.”
