Arctic Drilling Structure

Beaufort Sea, Alaska

To overcome the challenges of the extreme loading of the arctic ice pack and accommodate a variety of soil foundation conditions, BergerABAM developed the deep-water arctic drilling structure (ADS). The ADS was designed to accommodate a significant range of water depth, foundation, and ice conditions of the deep-water Beaufort Sea.

Per well costs are reduced by mobile artic rigs incorporating strong simple framing details and composite construction, resulting in a safe, reliable, and durable drilling structure that can operate year-round in extreme conditions. The platform can be relocated efficiently for new exploration or delineation drilling.
