Diamond Offshore- Ocean Courage and Valor Upgrades

Diamond Offshore commissioned a mooring study by Delmar to investigate the potential to add mooring capability to their traditionally DP only units.

Delmar considered various mooring options at multiple water depths in the study.  From the performance results of the study and from a cost standpoint, Diamond easily saw the benefit of potentially upgrading the units to be DP/moored on an 8-line system and to evade extreme events as DP rigs typically do versus trying to design a 12-line system that intends to ride out any storm.
