BP awards Saipem America two contracts

Offshore staff

HOUSTON -- BP Exploration & Production has awarded two contracts to Saipem America.

The first contract is for the BP-operated Mad Dog drilling rig replacement project in the US Gulf of Mexico. The scope of work includes project management, engineering, transportation, and removal of the existing drilling support module from the Mad Dog spar. The company also will install the new drilling rig module onto the spar.

Offshore operations with Saipem 7000 are planned for late 2011/early 2012.

The second award is a contract extension for ROV support services on the Transocean Development Driller II. The four-year contract will run through November 2013.

Two Saipem Innovator ROVs will perform heavy subsea construction and intervention tasks as well as normal drilling rig support functions. For the past three years, Saipem has operated the heavy work-class Innovator 150-HP ROV systems on the rig.
