Operating for ConocoPhillips offshore Norway, Mærsk Innovator needed to be able to work above the design airgap of 45 metres.
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 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.
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 that 1 billion NOK compared to original budget.
The Integrator Rig Team works actively with our clients to identify projects that can lead to safe and more-efficient operations.
The Integrator Rig Team takes active ownership of the need to reduce the environmental impacts of drilling operations.
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.
In May 2017, the Maersk Invincible became the world’s first harsh environment rig to operate entirely on shore power.
New technology has allowed Total to save the need to drill a 5th oil well.
Performing plug & abandonment work for client BP Norway, Maersk Reacher finished impressively 558 days ahead of schedule.
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.
In just one day, Maersk Interceptor drilled more than a mile, exactly 1742 meters, setting a new Norwegian drilling record.
The Maersk Reacher has recently returned to operation at the Valhall field for the client Aker BP after an extended stacking period in Invergordon.
