Asry Wins $13m Contract

Wednesday, July 12, 2006
According to reports, Arab Shipbuilding and Repair Yard Company (Asry) has been awarded a major contract from National Drilling Company (NDC), in Abu Dhabi, for their offshore self-elevating three legged jack-up drill rig the Al Mariyah. The rig, originally manufactured by Nippon Kokan K K in 1982, is owned by NDC and has been lying unused for a while now. In order to meet the increasing demands of its operations in the Arabian Gulf, NDC has decided to re-activate the rig in a phased manner.

Asry has been awarded the first phase of the work and the contract is valued in excess of some $13 million. Asry was awarded the contract earlier in the year and the rig arrived in Bahrain on June 10 for a six-month programme of refurbishment and upgrade work. The scope of work mainly involves extensive hull and structure repairs and refurbishment, both externally and internally. Major repairs and part renewal will be undertaken to the three cylindrical legs, each 210 feet long. There will also be a complete overhaul undertaken to the leg elevating system with renewal of the hydraulic motors as well as the control consoles for the three legs. Included in the repairs is the installation of a new raw water tower, fabrication of new lifeboat platforms as well as substantial replacement of steel. In all, it is estimated that some 1,000 tons of steel will be utilised during the refurbishment contract. The current accommodation quarters for 80 personnel will be refurbished as will the other common areas of the rig, to bring it back to the standards of the company to ensure an extremely high level of safety and comfort for the crew.

The fire and safety systems of the rig will be replaced along with the cabling. On completion of all topside work the rig will be fully blasted and painted. Source: Gulf Daily News
