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.
