ECC awarded contracts by Transocean

Mr. Patrick O’Callaghan, President & CEO of East Coast Catering Limited is pleased to announce that the company has been awarded two multi-year contracts by Transocean. The contracts are for the provision of catering and housekeeping services onboard the semi-submersible drill rigs GSF Grand Banks and Henry Goodrich.

The GSF Grand Banks is a semi-submersible drill rig capable of operating in water depths to 1500 feet. It is under contract to Husky Oil Operations Ltd. to drill and develop up to 21 wells, including oil producers, water injectors and gas injectors, for the White Rose oilfield. The GSF Grand Banks has onboard accommodations for 120 people. ECC had previously provided procurement and logistics support to the rig.

The Henry Goodrich is a semi-submersible drilling unit capable of operating in harsh environments and water depths to 5000 feet. It is currently under contract in the US Gulf of Mexico but is due to return to East Coast Canada in July to begin a multi-year drilling program under a rig-sharing agreement between StatoilHydro, Petro-Canada and Husky. The Henry Goodrich has onboard accommodations for up to 150 people. ECC had previously provided catering and housekeeping services to the rig, from March 2002 through October 2007, while it was under contract to Petro-Canada to complete development drilling for the Terra Nova oilfield.

“We have had a long and successful history of service to Transocean” stated Mr. O’Callaghan “and we are extremely pleased and honoured to have been awarded these contracts.”
