Senior project manager, Terry Lelean, says: "The contract lasted ten weeks and involved more than 260 personnel at peak operation, 160 of which were directly employed through Global Resources.
"The rig had been cold stacked in the Cromarty Firth, Invergordon, since 2002," continues Terry. "The first activity involved lifting anchors and towing it to the quayside at Queens Dock, which in itself represented a number of challenges as much of the machinery had not been operational for five years."
On arrival in Queens Dock, the Senior Project Manager, project team and a number of the Engineering Group Senior Management defined a work scope to re-certify the rig for fitness to tow to Indian Waters and commence a drilling program during the third quarter of 2007.
"A wide range of work was then carried out on the moored vessel, from Special Periodic Surveys and AKER modifications to the re-commissioning and recertification of deck cranes and the upgrading of mud pipework and mud pumps," says Terry.
Engineering Project Services Group Director, Donald MacGregor adds: "This has been a major undertaking for a division established in March 2005. The achievement of this project is a testament to the experience, dedication, hard work and ultimate team work throughout the division and group."
The Global Resources Group is a dynamic, fast-growing organization focused on the provision of world class services and solutions. The Group operates in both the oil and gas and non-oil and gas markets and has met with particular success in the drilling, subsea, production support, petro-chem, M.O.D. and utilities sectors.
