Drilling Operations Manager

Gentlemen, Please allow me to pass on my congratulations on the achievement of one year LTI free on Sakson Rig PR3 on the Taza 2 Location. This is an admirable achievement, of which the entire Sakson organisation and the Taza support team can be proud.

Karl Berghofer

Drilling Manager OMV KRI

“This letter is to certify that the crews on the rig Sakson PR3 have contributed to a remarkable achievement in drilling the well Bina Bawi 5 in a safe and effective manner. During the Bina Bawi 5 drilling operations the rig crew were exposed to non-standard drilling technologies. The well was finally drilled to a target depth of 3426m MD in 149 days within the planned time and significantly below cost.”
