We started drilling in early January, and have managed to stay on track since then. The crews have made a huge effort to both operate and optimize operations at the same time. Soon it was obvious that the extensive training paid off with a good safety mindset and good performance. The first well is now coming to an end, and we have already gathered a lot of learnings both from our own experiences and by using the after action reviews from our sister rig, the Maersk Intrepid.
It has been a steep curve so far, and to be honest it has been quite hectic at times too. We are getting more and more familiar with both our colleagues and the many new pieces of equipment, and I am happy to say that we experience very good team work on board. We feel like we have started out the cooperation with our customer in a very good way, promising an interesting and promising future for the rig.
Again, I am happy and proud to say “all well on board”!
