Noble rig first to arrive at Nigg Oil Terminal jetty
- Exploration & Production
Global Energy Group has welcomed the first jack-up rig to berth at the Nigg Terminal jetty where it will be in lay up while it waits for its next contract.
Global Energy Group said last Friday that the rig Noble Hans Deul berthed at the Nigg Terminal Jetty on March 19, 2020, around 7:30 pm local time, after being maneuvered into position with the assistance of Caledonian Towage’s Strathdon harbor tug.
The jack-up rig has recently worked for Spirit Energy in the UK North Sea. Spirit Energy last October exercised final option well for the 2009-built Noble Hans Deul jack-up, extending the contract to April 2020.
Global Energy took over the lease and operation of the Nigg Terminal jetty on February 28 this year, and the company stated that there was already a lot of interest shown to use the deepwater facility.
The firm plans on utilizing the jetty as an extension of the Port of Nigg berthing capability and stated that it was hopeful that further vessels would utilize the facility in the coming weeks and months.
To remind, Global Energy took over the long-term operation of the jetty following an agreement with Repsol Sinopec Resources UK under a new lease with Crown Estates Scotland.
The agreement between Global Energy and Repsol Sinopec for the operatorship of the Nigg Oil Terminal jetty was reached in October 2019.
Repsol Sinopec will continue to operate the main oil terminal and to work towards the final decommissioning of its facilities.
