COSCO (Guangdong) Shipyard informs of the delivery of a self-erecting drilling tender barge, to the firm Energy Drilling.

The tender barge has a working depth of 2,000 meters, a drilling depth of 20,000 feet and is equipped with heavy lift cranes with a safe working load of 400 metric tonnes.

According to PetroWiki, Tender Assist Drilling (TADs) units were the rig of choice in the 1950s and early 1960s in the Gulf of Mexico for development drilling off fixed platforms. They are used less commonly now, but are appropriate for certain situations, and sometimes for new drilling from an aging platform near shore.
