Pre-lay mooring services

Pre-lay Mooring Services from InterMoor

Pre-lay moorings involve the provision and installation of a complete additional drilling rig mooring spread before the drilling rig arrives on location.

Acteon is ready to respond to international and domestic rig move and pre-lay mooring needs, saving clients valuable time and money.

For a pre-lay campaign, Acteon provides two mooring systems, with the rig using one whilst the second is ‘leap-frogged’ to the next well and prepared. The rig can therefore move to the new location and hook up to the installed mooring without waiting. Pre-laying the mooring system has some clear benefits: financial; safety and integrity; scheduling; and provides additional local activities, all whilst improving the efficiency of the drilling programme.

It is clear that the direct financial benefits of pre-lay are a key factor, but the enhanced safety and integrity are critical aspects for consideration. Pre-laying a mooring spread moves this activity off the rig’s critical path and reduces the substantive time (and cost) pressures that holding up a drilling programme entails.

Acteon’s latest mooring connector, the IM Release allows faster “leap-frogging” between systems thanks to a Teledyne enabled acoustic release system, that can disconnect at the push of a button.
