TDI-Halter Delivers Pride Of Texas

Thursday, July 29, 1999
Gulfport, Miss.-based TDI-Halter, a Halter Marine Group company completed its conversions and upgrades of Pride of Texas and Pride of Kansas from mat slot to mat cantilevered jackup drilling rigs. Designed to handle a 1,400 kip hook load at 45 ft. cantilevered position, Texas is able to move up to 12 ft. off centerline to port to starboard - in depths of as much as 300 ft. To accommodate the new cantilever system, as well as being enabling the rig to work against fixed platforms in deepwater, the mat was increased in size and modified. Texas is the second of the conversions to be performed by Halter, the first being Kansas, which underwent its alterations in January 1999.
