OOS Energy, an offshore service provider from the Netherlands and part of the OOS Group, said that its onshore and offshore management teams took over the Ships Management of the Semi-Submersible Drillship ODN DELBA III.
Upon completion of the handover, the office management and crew continued to prepare the vessel for her voyage to Mexico, which included the finalization of all required documentation and certification in accordance to the interim audits which were conducted and successfully passed.
The ODN DELBA III finally departed Guanabara Bay on Saturday 9th November bound for her new project in Mexico.
last month, OOS Energy acquired the equipment after settling the operation with a pool of banks financing the unit, led by the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB).
Made in conjunction with a Mexican investment bank, the acquisition of the rig could mark OOS’s first initiative in the drilling sector.
Capable of drilling at a depth of 2,400 m, Delba III has been stationary for two months in Guanabara Bay (RJ) since its contract with Petrobras was terminated in 2012.
Originally, the rig was contracted to Delba, but the Brazilian group had problems in the construction phase, and Ocyan eventually took over the work and the charter contract.
