The rig has been jacked-up to the drilling level, the cantilever has been skidded out, and the survey and diving equipment has been prepared for installation of the permanent Drilling Template.
The Template was brought to the field using “GSP Queen” and equipped with the survey system. On the July 24th, the template was engaged with the Running Tool and drill string HW 5 “, picked up from the vessel and launched into the sea.
These operations mark the commencement of works under the EPCI and drilling contract from Energean Oil and Gas, Greece, for the development of the Epsilon field.
In order to increase production from the Prinos concession area, Energean Oil & Gas has initiated the Epsilon field development project, which comprises an unmanned wellhead platform and three inter-connecting pipelines to the existing Prinos Delta Platform. The scope of work includes the drilling of 3 wells at Lamda Platform location (Aegean Sea), using GSP Jupiter jack-up rig, as well as the Project Management, Construction, Transportation & Installation Engineering, Procurement, Construction, Installation, Pre-commissioning, Assistance in the Commissioning and Start-up of the Lamda platform and inter-connecting pipelines.
The Lamda platform will be sited approximately 4 kilometres west of the existing Prinos Delta complex. Lamda is designed to function as a NNM, remotely operable under all weather conditions. The installation is designed with the minimal facilities required to safely control production and to enable drilling and well interventions.
