Cape Of Good Hope

  • Houston Offshore International, Inc.'s Sabine V drilling rig prepares to float off of the Dan Lifter in Cameron, La. ship channel after returning to Gulf waters recently from Singapore. The rig was built in Betblehem Steel's shipyards there and remained in the Far East for almost a year before becoming the first of several rigs this year to return to the U.S. J.L. Heavyweight Transport A/S of Denmark and with offices in Houston, owners of the Dan Lifter, completed the journey around the Cape of Good Hope and on to the Gulf Coast in only 42 days. The Sabine V moved fully legged-up, greatly reducing outfitting time for the rig after its arrival. It is a mat-supported, canti-levered jack-up rig capable of working in water depths up to 200 feet. Unlike other Sabine class rigs, the Sabine V has crew accommodations for 80 men on three levels, making it approximately 2/3 larger than rigs of comparable class.
