Transocean Barents yard stay completed ahead of schedule

Oilfield Technology,

The H6 drilling rig Transocean Barents leaves Kvaerner at Stord, having completed the five year classification and the planned upgrade and modification work more than one week ahead of schedule.

Norwegian Sea assignment

The rig will now spend approximately one week in the Klosterfjorden for sea trials before it continues to its next assignment in the Norwegian Sea.

The project has been conducted with good HSSE results.

The Transocean Barents

The Transocean Barents is an Aker H-6e sixth generation dual activity dynamically-positioned semi-submersible drilling rig designed to operate in harsh environments and water depths up to 10 000 feet.

The rig was one of two drilling platforms of the H6-e design delivered from Stord in 2009. The twin rigs, Transocean Barents and Transocean Spitsbergen, have become known as state-of-the-art drilling rigs with high and stable performance.
