Deep Sea Mooring (DSM), a Vryhof company, has started operations under the newly awarded contract to provide pre-lay mooring products and services to the Deepsea Bergen semi-submersible drilling rig on the Norwegian Continental Shelf.
Austrian oil & gas company OMV has deployed the semi-submersible rig to support drilling activities in the region.
With operations coordinated out of DSM’s equipment base in Mongstad, Norway, the pre-lay mooring equipment and services provided will include chain, fibre ropes, anchors, connectors, buoyancy and handling equipment as well as mobilization and demobilization services.
“Today’s announcement reinforces Deep Sea Mooring’s position as the leading provider of mooring solutions on the Norwegian Continental Shelf,” said Dan Pedersen, Vryhof’s commercial director.
Deepsea Bergen is a third generation semi-submersible drilling rig of an Aker H-3.2 design, currently on contract to OMV at the Haltenbanken area, approximately 280 km north of Kristiansund with a water depth of 342 meters.
