Offshore drilling oil rigs are becoming a rare sight these days as there are no active offshore oil or gas fields and no plans for drilling any new ones. Therefore today's arrival may be the last for a while. Noble Regina Allen has completed its work plugging five gas wells in the Deep Panuke field off Sable Island and arrived in port this morning.
The jack-up rig and was towed in by Atlantic Kingfisher and Siem Commander assisted in the harbour by Atlantic Fir, Atlantic Oak, and Atlantic Willow.
Atlantic Kingfisher cast off first and headed for Pier 9C.
