MAIN WORKS :

The Songa Saturn is a shipshape drilling unit, capable of operating in water depths up to 3,300 feet using a 18-3/4, "10 ksi BOP and 21" OD riser. In September, Songa Offshore purchased the drill ship Glomar Robert F Bauer. The rig was renamed Songa Saturn and delivered on 11 November 2005. The Songa Saturn entered Tuzla Shipyard for refurbishment and re-certification. The successful upgrading project which took nearly 12 months consisted of steel replacement, new topside equipment, water depth upgrade to 3300 ft and certain ballast enhancements included a 5-year special periodic survey, marks another milestone for Tuzla Shipyard.
