GSF Main Pass I Sets New Record in Saudi Arabia

The GSF Main Pass I (MPI) was recently recognized for setting a new record for the longest offshore well in Saudi Arabia at 25,645 feet MD (measured depth). In addition to this milestone for our customer, Saudi Aramco, the well was delivered incident-free and more than 20 days ahead of schedule. 

Here is what a Saudi Aramco drilling engineer had to say in an appreciation note to Transocean and others involved in the drilling operation: “I would like to express my deep appreciation on the recent record achieved by the MPI team for drilling successfully and achieving this new offshore field record.”

The hard work of Transocean’s crew on the MPI does not go unnoticed and is commended as they performed a key role in achieving this record.
