Dolphin Drilling unveils new deepwater drillship


ABERDEEN -- Dolphin Drilling, one of the oldest and largest independent drilling contracting companies in the North Sea, attended a naming ceremony recently to unveil the identity of a brand new state-of-the-art drillship to be operated by the company.

The ceremony for the 751-ft-long ultra deepwater asset – now known as Bolette Dolphin – took place at the Hyundai Heavy Industries Shipyard in Ulsan, South Korea, where it is currently being built.

The drillship, designed for efficient deepwater drilling and completion activity, will start work for Anadarko Petroleum Corporation later this year and has been contracted for a four year international campaign.

Graeme Murray, Managing Director at Dolphin Drilling Ltd, who attended the ceremony with his colleagues, commented: “The naming ceremony of the Bolette Dolphin hails a key step in the company’s strategic development with a deep water focus, directly in line with industry demands as exploration and production continues to push to ever deeper depths.”

The vessel is equipped to operate within 12,000 ft of water, with a maximum drilling depth of 40,000ft.
