Maneuvering through narrow streets in the stifling heat, 24 Sarens employees and 5 police officers successfully delivered an oil rig to the North Rumaila Oil Field in southern Iraq. This super-giant oil field is an important resource: it contains an estimated 17 billion barrels of oil, or 12% of the country’s reserves.
Sarens performed the operation on behalf of Rumaila Operating Organization (ROO) and BP Iraq N.V.
The oil rig had a 93t mast measuring 32m x 3.6m x 7m, as well as a 147t bottom structure measuring 22m x 9m x 6m.*The following equipment was deployed for its transport and installation:

  • 1*x*250*mobile*crane
  • 1*x*120*mobile*crane
  • 14*axle*line*conventional*trailer
  • 9*axle*line*conventional*trailer
  • K-25*hydraulic*suspended wooden*supports
  • Climbing*jack*system

Transport was smooth and the client was happy with Sarens’ performance, including the use of SPMTs for the*operation.
“This is the first rig move in Rumaila Oil Field via SPMT,” says branch manager and technical solutions manager Shwan Askari. “Sarens transported the total substructure about 5 kilometers, saving time and money. The entire operation was carried out safely.”
