Stena Drilling launches 2nd of 4 state-of-the-art drillships

Stena Drilling Ltd. announced the naming of its second, of four, state-of-the-art, dual mast, dynamically positioned, ultra deepwater drillships, the ‘Stena Carron’, at Samsung Heavy Industries’ shipyard in Geoje, South Korea.

The drillship was named by Letitia Payne, wife of Dave Payne, VP Drilling and Completions, Global Upstream, Chevron - which will utilise the vessel in a five-year northern European and international drilling campaign.

‘Stena Carron’ is a dual-mast, ultra-deepwater, dynamically-positioned drillship, capable of drilling in water depths of up to 10,000ft and has a total drilling depth of up to 35,000ft. This technologically advanced drilling rig is designed to offer maximum safety and operational efficiency in mild and harsh environments, faster transit speed between locations and greater deck load, to accommodate more equipment.

Tom Welo, Managing Director of Stena Drilling said: “We are delighted to witness the launch of Stena Carron; a magnificent drilling unit designed with the highest capabilities to manage Chevron’s harsh environment and ultra-deepwater drilling campaigns. Our success in the delivery and current operation of Stena Carron’s sister ship, Stena DrillMAX, sets an encouraging precedent and gives us all a great sense of confidence”.
