New class certificates from ABS International for GSP’s rigs

September 19, 2007

Grup Servicii Petroliere (GSP) has initiated a comprehensive classification process for three of its offshore drilling units. Jupiter, Prometeu and Saturn rigs will be classified under the American Bureau of Shipping (ABS) register. Atlas and Orizont drilling rigs are classified under Germanischer Lloyd Certification GmbH (GLC) Register.

Consistent with the extensive strategy of its assets’ development and modernization, the classification of the drilling rigs under ABS is the next step for GSP. After having invested an impressive amount of resources in the acquisition and the technical upgrading of its rigs during the past three years, GSP is undertaking a classification process at the end of which three of the company’s mobile offshore drilling units will obtain a class certificate from ABS.

At the present moment, the ABS is inspecting Jupiter drilling rig, Prometeu being the next one to enter the classification process.

The American Bureau of Shipping (ABS) and Germanischer Lloyd Certification GmbH (GLC) are two of the world’s leading ship classification societies, setting standards of excellence and safety for the marine industry. ABS and GLC provides both certification and classification for projects around the world, establishing and applying a set of high safety and quality technical standards.
