Disaster struck Maersk-rig gets new project

Disaster struck Maersk-rig gets new project

26-01-2018 13:50:00


The Petroleum Safety Authority Norway has given Aker BP permission to use the Maersk Interceptor jackup rig at the Ivar Aasen field in the North Sea. The rig will drill and complete the project of building two water injection wells. The rig made headlines worldwide in December 2017 due to a tragic accident.

The Maersk Drilling rig, which was built at the Keppel yard in Singapore back in 2014, will start the project in the Ivar Aasen field in February.

In December 2017, a fatal accident took place on the Maersk Interceptor, when a Norwegian Maersk employee fell 50 meters into the water during a maintenance routine. Another employee was hit by a falling object, but was fortunately not victim of life-threatening injuries.

During the investigation of the accident, the Norwegian authorities found serious deficiencies in the operating systems and processes at Maersk Interceptor, which led to a series of injunctions for Maersk Drilling Norway.
