Marine 7 gets new lease on life

Oceaneering is poised to land Apache Energy’s Western Australia offshore development project. Apache and their partners have selected Oceaneering over Brown & Root and Kvaerner based on Oceaneering’s cost effective development plan. The Marine 7, a Bethlehem designed 350 foot mat slot jackup located in the US Gulf, will be refurbished and outfitted as an early production jackup. The rig will be connected to a bouy and floating storage vessel.
