Default New generation spar coming this summer near Ursa

<DIV id=post_message_1942173>Howdy,
There will be a new type of spar - the ATP Titan - which will be towed out and moored about 8 miles south of Ursa sometime this summer! In 2007, due to lack of nearby accessible infrastructure near ATP's Telemark Hub project, ATP decided to utilize a self contained floating drilling and production triple-column spar structure. This is the first hull configuration of this kind. This versatile deepwater operating concept, comprised of three columns linked by pontoons, offers higher variable load capacity and enhanced stability over traditional single-hulled spars.

Enclosed is a shot of the new rig.

Also enclosed is a shot of its location in a navigation format that Hilton's is launching soon! The boat's location is on the temp break from a sea temp image taken this morning, navigating a route in simulator mode. Details to follow...

All the best,
Tom </DIV><DIV style="PADDING-RIGHT: 6px; PADDING-LEFT: 6px; PADDING-BOTTOM: 6px; PADDING-TOP: 6px"><FIELDSET class=fieldset><LEGEND>Attached Images</LEGEND><DIV style="PADDING-RIGHT: 3px; PADDING-LEFT: 3px; PADDING-BOTTOM: 3px; PADDING-TOP: 3px"></DIV></FIELDSET></DIV>

I think they are actually tying in Telemark to Minidock.

Can't have too many rigs. Unfortunately that one is a little out of the way for the boats I'm usually on.
