In the Solaris project for Total E&P, Mærsk Gallant drilled a recordbreaking ultra-high-pressure – high-temperature (HPHT) well on the Norwegian Continental Shelf in 2016.
The Integrator Rig Team takes active ownership of the need to reduce the environmental impacts of drilling operations.
The Integrator Rig Team works actively with our clients to identify projects that can lead to safe and more-efficient operations.
In just one day, Maersk Interceptor drilled more than a mile, exactly 1742 meters, setting a new Norwegian drilling record.
The Interceptor team and the operator, Det Norske, carried out a trial in 2015 involving picking up and racking of sand screens in the derrick utilising all pipe handling equipment.
In June 2018, operator AkerBP was in a need of a rig to perform an appraisal of the Hanz field. At that time, Maersk Intrepid
was assigned to Equinor at the Martin Linge field.
New technology has allowed Total to save the need to drill a 5th oil well.
At Eldfisk 2/7 S platform, the operator ConocoPhillips identified an immediate need for Mærsk Innovator to install MPD to stabilise the downhole formation equipment.
Operating for ConocoPhillips offshore Norway, Mærsk Innovator needed to be able to work above the design airgap of 45 metres.
In May 2017, the Maersk Invincible became the world’s first harsh environment rig to operate entirely on shore power.
During the 1½-year-long plug and abandonment campaign undertaken by Maersk Invincible at the Valhall DP platform, the rig performed consistently and efficiently, resulting in no “Total Recordable Cases” since new build, and saving our client
more than 1 billion NOK compared to original budget.
The Maersk Reacher has recently returned to operation at the Valhall field for the client Aker BP after an extended stacking period in Invergordon.
Performing plug & abandonment work for client BP Norway, Maersk Reacher finished impressively 558 days ahead of schedule.
For projects involving shallow water drilling in the North Sea, an appropriately equipped jack-up rig may be a better fit for the task than a semi-submersible rig.
As part of a highly impressive campaign for Aker BP, the XLE jack-up became the first rig on the Norwegian Continental Shelf to go beyond 2000m on a 12 ¼” section inside 24 hours.
