Interceptor setting a Norwegian record by drilling more than a mile in one day

The record was made on well D-2 of Ivar Aasen and was the result of a one-team approach between Maersk Drilling, customer Aker BP and third-party Schlumberger. The operation was a joint effort by the entire rig, with the night crew starting the record-breaking drill and the day crew setting the record in the afternoon.

Overall, the operations at Ivar Aasen have been a success, with new records being continuously achieved, such as racking of all casing- and tubing strings while
running wireline, high-performance batching of deep-set conductors, and maximising ROP potential throughout all sections while reducing time spent on flat spots.
