Fairmount Summit Brings West Ariel Safely to Singapore

Tug Fairmount Summit has towed jack-up rig West Ariel safely from Vung Tau, Vietnam, to Singapore.

The towage over a distance of 1,305 miles was performed in seven days with an average speed of 4 knots.

The West Ariel, a KFels B class independent leg cantilever jack-up rig, was built in 2008 by Keppels Fels, Singapore and is owned by UK based Seadrill Ltd. The 73 meters long, 10,352 GT rig can drill up to 9,144 meters in depth.

For this job the Fairmount Summit was mobilized from Singapore. When the convoy arrived in Singapore the rig was handed over to local harbor tugs.
