Fairmount Tugs Tow Rig to Brazil
Tug pair picked up drilling rig in Pascagoula, Miss.
Super tugs Fairmount Sherpa and Fairmount Expedition have towed the drilling rig Noble Max Smith from the Gulf of Mexico to Brazil.
Noble Max Smith is a semi-submersible drilling rig owned by Noble and contracted by Shell for drilling offshore Brazil over the next three years, Fairmount said in a statement.
The rig was waiting in a shipyard in Pascagoula, Miss. when the tugs arrived and connected their towing wires to the rig. The convoy then began a 5,500-mile journey to Niterói, Brazil, stopping at Bridgetown, Barbados, for supplies.
After arriving in Niterói, the Fairmount Expedition assisted with mooring the rig into its offshore position.
