Off the Coast of Mumbai

A drilling rig which was in place and jacked-up approximately 85 miles off the coast of Mumbai when Cyclone Taukatae hit in May 2021. The damage sustained during the cyclone resulted in the entire drilling derrick and associated supporting structures being lost overboard together with other debris and equipment from the deck of the rig. Resolve Marine was contracted to assist with the recovery of the derrick which was resting in 60 meters of water and against the leg of the rig. Using a combination of chain pullers deployed from a derrick barge, Resolve successfully removed the derrick and associated debris just before the onset of monsoon season, which enabled the drilling rig to be safely moved from the oil field.
