Kishorn prepares the largest semi-submersible platform in the world

Kishorn Port, in Scotland, has signed a contract to visit the world's largest semi-submersible offshore drilling rig, Ocean GreatWhite.

Owned by Diamond Offshore, the Ocean GreatWhite weighs 60.800 tonnes and is a 6th generation unit capable of drilling up to 10.000m in 3.000m of water. With a draft of more than 23 meters, the rig needs deep water for anchoring. The Ocean GreatWhite has made its way from Singapore via Las Palmas in the Canaries over the last five months, assisted by the Alp Defender, a large 5600 ton ocean supply vessel. The rig is set to start a drilling contract in the North Sea in early 2019.

Namely, as previously reported, Ocean GreatWhite has been awarded a contract by Siccar Point. The contract, for three firm wells plus three option wells, is scheduled to start in early March and end in mid-July 2019.

According to information from VesselsValue, the probe is currently located in the North Atlantic, west of Ireland and is scheduled to arrive at Loch Kishorn on December 29, 2018.

During its station in Kishorn, the rig will be prepared for its drilling program, with Ferguson Transport and Shipping providing agency and stevedoring maritime support, KPL said.

Alasdair Ferguson, Director of KPL, recently visited the platform in Las Palmas and commented: “I couldn't help but be impressed by the sheer scale of Ocean GreatWhite. We hope that the platform mooring and support at Kishorn ushers in a new era of involvement in the oil and gas industry at Kishorn. ”
