After an 11,500 nautical mile tow from Singapore to Curaçao, via the Cape of Good Hope, the Fairmount Sherpa’s job is done.
This 75-meter, 16,320 BHP ocean-going tug hauled Seadrill’s newly delivered cylindrically-shaped drilling rig, the Sevan Louisiana, from COSCO (Nantong) Shipyard in China, while making stops in Port Louis (Mauritius), Walvis Bay (Namibia) and Port of Spain (Trinidad) to take bunkers and for crew changes.
From this point on, the rig will continue under its own power to Mississippi Canyon in the Gulf of Mexico to begin its three-year, ~ USD $550 million contract with LLOG Bluewater Holdings LLC, a joint venture between LLOG Exploration and Blackstone.
Sevan Louisiana is propelled by eight thrusters and is equipped to drill in waters up to 10,000 feet deep.
