Fairmount Marine's tug Fairmount Expedition has towed jackup rig Naga 3 from the PV Marine Shipyard in Vung Tau, Vietnam, to the RD-19X Block 15-2 oilfield offshore Vietnam.
Last month the tug towed the rig from Singapore to the shipyard, after which the Fairmount Expedition remained anchored off Vung Tau, said Fairmount.
The Naga 3 is a Gusto MSC CJ46-X100-D design jackup rig, built in 2010 by Dubai Drydocks World and owned by UMW Petropipe/Singapore Drilling.
The 70m-long rig can drill up to 9144m in depth. At the Vung Tau shipyard the Naga 3 was prepared for her next job offshore Vietnam for the Japan Vietnam Petroleum Company (JVPC).
After the towage to the offshore location the Fairmount Expedition assisted with the installation of the rig. Also some cargo runs were performed. During this operations several JVPC employees were accommodated onboard.
