Interceptor - Reliability & Efficiency

Since built in 2014, Maersk Interceptor has shown steady performance on 12 locations. In 2018 during subsea development for Spirit Energy in Norway, the rig, crew and onshore technical department showed results in operational excellence.

Interceptor - Reliability & Efficiency

Maersk Drilling experts where involved in the project at a very early stage to:

  • Plan and execute subsea modifications
  • Develop animations of the field drilling and completion execution plan, providing everyone involved with a full overview of the projects
  • Plan how to fully utilise existing rig equipment instead of installing additional equipment, resulting in cost savings for the client
  • Provide overall technical advice and tailormade solutions to optimise operation and improve safety e.g. a solution for lifting and handling equipment for the CTT400 to save time and keep people out of harm’s way

Already before commencement, targets were re-evaluated due to previous rig performance. The actual performance during this campaign was 68.4 days ahead of P50/AFE and 35 days ahead of P10/AFE. Maersk Drilling’s technical solutions and a “One Team, Well Prepared” philosophy with the operator resulted in significant time and cost savings and accelerated first oil by 5 months.
