Valiant Driller jackup completes move

March 30, 2015

Aqualis Offshore completed the marine warranty services for the dry transportation of the mobile offshore drilling unit Valiant Driller jackup from Indonesia to India, where it will operate for ONGC. Aqualis currently provides marine warranty services on 26 rigs offshore India.

Valiant Driller, owned by Jackup Drilling, was transported from Indonesia on the COSCO heavy lift vessel Xian Yun kou, following a float-on operation at the Port of Batu Ampar, Batam, Indonesia. After the heavy lift vessel safely reached India, the rig was wet towed to a platform drilling location at the Mumbai High oil field, offshore the west coast of India.

Aqualis was appointed as marine warranty surveyor on behalf of the rig owner, and supported the operation throughout by conducting independent reviews of the engineering, marine procedures and on-site approvals of marine activities. The rig move was managed by Aqualis’ office in Dubai, United Arab Emirates.
