CCB to Upgrade Odfjell Drilling’s Deepsea Bergen

 Odfjell Drilling’s semi Deepsea Bergen will be berthed at the Coast Centre Base (CCB) yard in September. The rig will be modified for continued drilling services for Statoil.

Odfjell Drilling has awarded CCB the contract for the yard stay for Deepsea Bergen where the rig will undergo planned client modifications for Statoil.

 “The choice of yard is based on a total evaluation with regards to HSE, time and cost. CCB is a modern facility with a long track record for rig modifications. We are looking forward to a safe and efficient upgrade of Deepsea Bergen“, says CEO Simen Lieungh in Odfjell Drilling.

The yard stay is estimated to 28 days excluding sailing time.

Deepsea Bergen is a harsh environment semisubmersible drilling rig on a long-term contract with Statoil. The rig is currently drilling on the Åsgard field in the Norwegian Sea. The rig completed a major client upgrade for Statoil in 2012 at the Westcon Yard in Ølen, Norway and is again being upgraded for future service to Statoil. After completing this yard stay the Deepsea Bergen will be ready for additional challenges for Statoil on the Norwegian Continental Shelf.

 Main jobs to be executed are:

• Change of completion equipment

• Installation of blisters to improve variable deck load

• Installation of new BOP crane

• Change of cement unit

• Installation of new LER room (Local Electrical Room)

TOC Americas

TOC (The Terminal Operations Conference) has long been considered best in class by container terminal operators and their suppliers. Over time, TOC has evolved and whilst they continue to deliver the highest quality technical content in line with their heritage, they also recognise that they must now hear from stakeholders higher up the cargo chain. Therefore, there are now two distinct elements to the event:

The exhibition is a showcase for port & terminal technology and operations plus TECH TOC, the free to attend technical conference aimed at terminal operators and their suppliers. Many suppliers come together to showcase cutting edge solutions to their clients, the terminal operators and ports.

More recently, the events now placed a new focus on the container supply chain making them the premier business and networking event for the stakeholders, including shippers, carriers and 3pl’s as well as the global operators and port authorities. This conversation takes place in the more recently created Container Supply Chain Conference.
