ModuSpec is delighted to announce the award of a contract to provide rig intake and inspection services to Aker BP ASA, a major Norwegian operator.
The contract includes assisting Aker BP ASA during the inspection and acceptance phases of the Scarabeo 8, 6th generation semi-submersible drilling rig whilst undergoing its special periodic survey (SPS) in a Norwegian shipyard.
The rig will also undergo modifications and upgrades specific to the operator’s multi-year programme commencing late Q4 2022.
ModuSpec has completed a variety of similar projects on the Scarabeo 8 over the past 10 years since its construction and will add value to the project by utilising our historical knowledge and deep understanding of local compliance requirements to operate within the Norwegian sector.
Mark Watson, Operations Manager with ModuSpec, said: “We are delighted to work again with Aker BP ASA, having provided support on an array of high-profile semi-submersible projects in recent years. Our approach during this project is to work collaboratively with Saipem and other stakeholders towards the goal of common success.
"Norway is a key region for ModuSpec, specifically with more complex projects involving the higher specification drilling units. This is a clear example of the customised and project-managed service that we provide.”
Our approach during this project is to work collaboratively with Saipem and other stakeholders towards the goal of common success.
