Deep Sea Mooring (DSM), a Vryhof company, said it won a Quadrant Energy contract to provide turnkey pre-lay mooring services to the Transocean GSF Development Driller 1 semisubmersible drilling rig offshore Australia.
The deal - a continuation of previous work for Quadrant Energy - begins in March 2018, DSM said in a statement but did not disclose the value of the contract.
The agreement - with the project scope and engineering consultancy coordinated out of Perth - will enable Quadrant to have access to DSM and Vryhof Anchors’ advanced portfolio of pre-lay mooring solutions that include chains, fibre ropes, anchors, connectors, buoyancy and handling equipment. Offshore personnel, back deck services, marine representatives and all equipment will be deployed from DSM’s Karratha, West Australia base.
“Today’s announcement is the continuation of a highly successful track record of delivering for Quadrant and is a significant platform upon which we can continue to grow our Australian business during 2018,” said Barry Silver, managing director, Asia Pacific for Deep Sea Mooring.
The GSF Development Driller 1 rig was built in 2005 and is a sixth generation semi-submersible with a maximum water depth of 7,500 feet and drilling depth of 37,500 feet.
