Christmas Comes Early for Maersk Voyager
Maersk Drilling’s ultra deepwater drillship Maersk Voyager has received its first subsea Xmas tree, the company informed through social media.
The vessel received the subsea Xmas tree for the upper completions phase of the Offshore Cape Three Points (OCTP) integrated oil and gas project offshore Ghana.
Maersk Voyager secured the 3.5 years’ OCTP contract from Eni Ghana Exploration and Production, a subsidiary of Eni.
The work on the project started in July 2015.
Maersk Voyager will now start batch running of the first five Xmas trees followed by the upper completions of those trees early in 2017, the company said.
The vessel is the last in a series of four drillships that Samsung Heavy Industries (SHI) shipyard in Geoje-Si delivered to Maersk Drilling.
Maersk Voyager features dual derrick and large subsea work and storage areas.
