  • Complete mooring upgrade to NC5 rating
  • Augmentation of the mooring equipment from a nine point spread to a twelve point spread
  • Installation of 520 tons of column water plane tanks for added stability enhancements
  • Installation of 270 tons of windlass deck extensions for added mooring winches
  • Modification of the column anchor bolsters to accept larger-capacity anchors
  • Painting of the columns & diagonals
  • Complete five year ABS survey

The Amos Runner has returned to drilling operations in the Gulf of Mexico.
