The Deep Panuke Production Field Center arrived in Halifax today, and was offloaded at the IEL Dock in Woodside. The barge carrying the platform was towed to Halifax by Maersk Detector and Maersk Cutter, and was assisted inbound by five Atlantic Towing tugs.
A change in plans occurred, when the Horizon Arctic was unable to get the anchors that would have held the platform and barge in place in Mulgrave to hold on the sea floor. the platform is only a few years old, so its owners are hoping to reuse it on another project elsewhere. it will be stored at Woodside until a use is found for it.
The Horizon Arctic returned to Pier 9 and offloaded the anchors. the Noble Regina Allen has been plugging Deep Panuke’s wells and currently is working on the final one. it will be towed back to Halifax in a few weeks. before it moves on to its next project.
