Deepsea Aberdeen finally set to work

Oslo: Odfjell Drilling’s Deepsea Aberdeen has finally started its drilling operations under its seven-year contract with BP on the Quad 204 field development project west of Shetland in the UK.

The accident stricken drilling unit has been delayed several times, once in 2013 at Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering (DSME) in Korea when it partly fell over costing months in delays and $10m in repairs. The rig was delivered from DSME in November last year.

“Our offshore crew and our onshore organisation in the UK are looking forward to working collaboratively with BP over the next seven years on the Quad 204 development,” said the CEO of Odfjell Drilling, Simen Lieungh.
