Inchcape Shipping Services (ISS) has been appointed by Paragon Offshore, Houston, as marine and logistic services provider for a new drilling campaign off the Songo Songo Islands, Tanzania – the first new commercial drilling project in Tanzania in a number of years.

ISS is providing a range of services for Paragon Offshore including full husbandry, crew logistics, visa assistance and arranging marine and air charters.

A leading provider of standard specification offshore drilling services, Paragon Offshore is deploying jack-up rig M826 on the nine month campaign for PanAfrican Energy Tanzania – the country’s first natural gas producer. M826 arrived at the field on board semi-submersible vessel, OHT Falcon, to be floated off and pinned to the drilling location.

During the campaign, M826 will clear actively producing wells to enhance output and will drill several new wells in the same field.

Commenting on the appointment TS Mahesh, General Manager, ISS Tanzania said: “We are delighted by our first appointment by Paragon Offshore in East Africa. The opportunity to support this drilling campaign takes ISS to the next level in the oil and gas support service sector in Tanzania and boosts our future growth plans.”
