Well-Safe Solutions adds jack-up rig to decommissioning fleet

September 14, 2020

Well-Safe Solutions has announced the acquisition of the West Epsilon jack-up rig from Seadrill, sparking a further job boost for the company.

Built in 1993, the asset is a heavy-duty, harsh environment jack-up with an extensive operational history in the North Sea. Well-Safe will start work immediately on the newly renamed 'Well-Safe Protector' to undertake an upgrade and modification programme, ready to deploy the unit specifically for enhanced plug and abandonment projects in early 2021.

The addition of the Protector follows the company's acquisition of the Well-Safe Guardian in April 2019 and adds to its growing portfolio of bespoke decommissioning assets.
