Tam Dao 3 drilling rig.
Vietnam has become one of the top ten countries in the world at building jack-up drilling rigs up to international standard.
A ceremony to transfer the Tam Dao 3 rig to owners, Vietsovpetro, was held on Mar. 30 at the PetroVietnam Marine shipyard in the southern city of Vung Tau.
With a 145m jacket, the Tam Dao 3 is able to drill wells up to a depth of 6,100m.
As a project of national importance, the construction of the rig has been recognised by the Vietnam Shipping Registration Agency and the American Bureau of Shipping.
Following this success, which marks a milestone for maritime construction in Vietnam, Vietsovpetro have placed another order with the yard for a second jack up drilling rig.
The company will also build a drilling barge able to drill up to 10,000m, ordered by PetroVietnam Drilling and Well Services Corporation. Source: VNA
