Horizon Marine Supports Rig Tow to Brazil

Wednesday, October 11, 2006
After 5,500 nautical miles and 64 days at sea, the semi-submersible drilling unit Noble Therald Martin arrived in Macae, Brazil. Horizon Marine assisted the routing of the rig prior to its departure and while underway. Horizon Marine’s Eddy Watch - Gulf of Mexico and Eddy Watch –Trinidad/Venezuela reports were issued to the tow vessels John P. Laborde and Maersk Master and used with great effect.

Traditionally Horizon Marine has focused north of the equator, but with the analysis and interpretation of satellite imagery and NOAA drifting GPS buoys, the route south of the equator was charted for and journeyed by the Noble Therald Martin without any surprises. As operations move further offshore into deeper water and assets are moved between oil fields, Horizon Marine’s Eddy Watch and Rig Watch programs are becoming an essential service to the oil industry.
