The accommodation rig Safe Britannia, owned by Safe Rig, has been hired for the Statfjord B platform in the North Sea from 1 April.

The flotel will be used for a period of three months while safety projects and planned maintenance are carried out. Among other things, a new system for wellhead control will be installed. In addition, the fire water will be upgraded.

Drilling and well activities will continue as normal. Extra beds are required in this busy period, says Terje Overvik, vice president for operations on Statfjord.
