Deep Sea Mooring (DSM), a Vryhof company, said it has secured a contract with Quadrant Energy to provide turnkey pre-lay mooring solutions to the Transocean GSF Development Driller 1 semisubmersible drilling rig offshore Australia. The deal – a continuation of previous work for Quadrant Energy – begins in March 2018.
The agreement, with the project scope and engineering consultancy coordinated out of Perth, will enable Quadrant to have access to DSM and Vryhof Anchors’ portfolio of pre-lay mooring solutions that include chains, fiber ropes, anchors, connectors, buoyancy and handling equipment. Offshore personnel, back deck services, marine representatives and all equipment will be deployed from DSM’s Karratha, West Australia base.
The GSF Development Driller 1 rig was built in 2005 and is a sixth generation semi-submersible with a maximum water depth of 7,500 feet and drilling depth of 37,500 feet.
