Our in-house designed HuisDrill 12000 is a self-propelled drill ship with DP-3 classification. By fully integrating the designs of the equipment and vessel, its displacement is only 54,000mt with operational capabilities equal to units with a displacement of 100,000mt. It is suitable for both Marine Drilling Riser (MDR) and Pressure Riser Drilling (PRD) for worldwide operation. The design is based on a mast-type drilling derrick and tubular setbacks in revolving carousels.
The design of the drilling package focuses on drilling efficiency and versatility. It permits drilling operations with MDR up to 12,000ft water depth. Total drilling depth capacity will be in excess of 12,190m (40,000ft) measured from sea level. Horizontal storage of 3,020m risers is in the hull below main deck.
From stern to bow, the hull contains the following major sections: aft thruster rooms, tubular storage and riser storage, drilling section in the centre of the unit, mud mixing, treatment and pumping section, power generation section with 4 independent engine rooms, forward thruster (retractable) rooms, accommodation section above the thrusters and power generation section.
The orders for integrated drilling equipment sets onboard the Noble Drillship Globetrotters are based on the HuisDrill 12000 designs.
