Kvaerner To Carry Out Inspection on Bideford Dolphin

Dolphin AS has selected Kvaerner Rosenberg to carry out the necessary inspection and repair of cracks in the horizontal cross-bracings on the Bideford Dolphin semisubmersible. The rig is due to arrive at the Rosenberg yard in Stavanger on Tuesday December 10th, and work will start on it immediately. The necessary planning to enable the project to be executed swiftly and efficiently has been set in motion. The aim is to get the rig ready to return to drilling on the Tordis field as soon as possible. The work will therefore be carried out in round-the-clock shifts.

Over the past year Kvaerner Rosenberg has undertaken considerable restructuring of its organization and facilities so as to be able to take on demanding emergency jobs as well as its traditional work of building new platforms.
