The Latch Master
Here is a video we have posted in the past & wanted to show you this guy again. The video is called The Latch Master & is from the semi submersible Ocean Valiant.
This rig is rated for 6,000 foot depths / 1000 fathoms. Drill up to depths of 30,000 feet & is found in the North Sea.
Derrick is 185′ x 40′ x 40′; Capacity: 1,500,000 lbs. Not a bad size at all.
Infield Rigs has some specs on this guy which can be found below:
Check out this photo from January 29th in the westernmost North Sea as a Hurricane Force low was rapidly developing in the northeast Atlantic, producing waves of 10 to 12 meters.
The photo was taken from the Solan platform located in UK waters west of Shetland at the Premier-operated Solan field and the rig you’re looking at is Diamond Offshore’s Ocean Valiant, an 8-point moored drilling platform.
