On February 5th, 2021, the PV DRILLING VI rig was honored to receive the Merit from operator of Block 05.3/11 for its outstanding achievements in drilling operation and HSE performance. According to the customer, the rig met and exceeded client’s expectations on their 2020/2021 drilling campaign at the Tho Tinh Nam oil field (TTN). Notably, PV DRILLING VI rig successfully completed two high-pressure, high temperature (HPHT) drilling wells, TTN-2X and TTN-3X, during a difficult period of the outbreak of the Covid-19 pandemic. Specifically, PV DRILLING VI rig carried out the drilling operations for operator of Block 05.3/11 from the beginning of May 2020 to the end of January 2021 without any Lost Time Incidents (Zero-LTI) as well as no environmental incidents. Also, in this 246-day drilling campaign, the rig's downtime (NPT) was only 36 hours, accounting for 0.6%. Thus, the rig has achieved an operating efficiency of 99.4%, a very high rate that few drilling campaigns ever achieved before.
