In mid-2011, Chevron Australia took delivery of the Atwood Osprey drill rig. The rig is a sixth generation deepwater semi-submersible rig able to conventionally moor in up to 2,438m (8,000 feet of water) and accommodate up to 200 people.
It is a purpose-built rig, which underpins our long-term commitment to find, appraise and develop Australian gas resources for domestic and international markets. The rig is involved in drilling exploration wells as well as drilling development wells for the Gorgon Project. Our development drilling program represents one of the most significant investments we have made in offshore activities in Western Australia.
The Atwood Eagle, a second rig we have contracted to Chevron Australia for the current drilling program, is a semi submersible rig with a maximum water depth of 5,000 feet and a drilling depth of 25,000 feet. Successful discoveries would be linked to facilities already operating or being planned – in turn providing substantial benefits to Australia.
