AGR was assigned the Well Management
services by Faroe Petroleum and project managed the drilling of an exploration well and technical sidetrack in the central part of the Norwegian North Sea.
It was also the first in Norway to be delivered under an ‘all in one’ cost agreement for pre-lay of anchors and chains.
Not only was the well located in a highly active fishing area that required the most stringent safety and environmental monitoring, but the team was also involved in bringing the cold-stacked semi-submersible Transocean Arctic back to perfect working order.
- The first well with a lump sum for pre-lay of anchors and chains providing the client greater cost certainty
- The hookup to the 8 chain pre-laid mooring system done in only 6.5 hrs
- The 36'' hole section the fastest drilled with an average ROP of 13.2 m/hour incl connections
