Signal Delivers Two Rigs for Diamond Offshore

Friday, May 08, 2009

Signal International, L.L.P. announced the recent completion and return to service of two Diamond Offshore rigs, the Ocean Titan and the Ocean America. The LeTourneau Class 64 jackup, Ocean Titan, entered Signal’s East Pascagoula, Mississippi yard for modifications and repairs on 06 March 2009 and departed on 14 April 2009.  Meanwhile, another Diamond rig, the eight-column semisubmersible Ocean America, spent 97 days on Signal’s Dry Dock at Port Arthur, Texas undergoing periodic inspection procedures and customer-planned modifications.

“Simultaneous performance of these two projects, one at dockside in Mississippi and the other on dry dock in Texas, demonstrates the wide geographic span of Signal’s GoM service capability, said Dick Marler, President and CEO of Signal.  “In the past we have also served Diamond and other drilling contractors with on-location work, which enables the rig owner to accomplish significant rig servicing work while experiencing little or no operational downtime”.

In addition to ensuring compliance with ABS Special survey requirements for both rigs, upgrades and modifications to the Ocean Titan included installation of an extension to the BOP control system house, fabrication of two new life boat platforms and replacement of 500 feet of leg jet piping and hangers.

Repairs and modifications to the Ocean America included tank cleaning; contain, blast and paint columns, deck box, tubular supports and derrick; removal and reinstallation of anchor chain for inspection; sacrificial anode installation and replacement of the drilling mud treatment system.
