A drilling unit is designed and optimized for drilling operations. The Sevan drilling units are equipped for deep water drilling operations and are operated as DP units.
A typical drilling operation includes activities as top-hole drilling and casing operations, cementing, riser and BOP (Blow Out Preventer) installation, drilling, mud operation, logging, well completion, etc.
A major part of the operations include handling of pipes, e.g. casing, drillpipes, riser joints, etc.
The Sevan MODU is prepared for well testing after the well is completed. The hull has ample storage for a normal well testing and test production operations.
