Island Innovator was built as a heavy well intervention vessel with full drilling specifications. It is designed specifically for maximum efficiency in production drilling on subsea templates.
The rig is equipped for efficient handling of x-mas trees and subsea structures including templates.
Dana Petroleum has awarded Island Drilling Company AS a contract to drill one well with the rig Island Innovator from April 2022. The duration is estimated to 90 days, with an option for 40 days. After completion of this contract, Island Innovator will commence work for Petrofac, to conduct one workover. The contract for Petrofac also has two options included. In Q4 2022, Island Innovator will move on to South Africa drilling the Gazania Well for ECO Atlantic Oil & Gas, before heading on to offshore Mauritania and Maersk Decom for plugging and abandonment of four firm wells, and one optional well at the Banda and Tiof fields. This will make the Island Innovator fully occupied during 2022.
