Inchcape picks up Paragon project

August 19 - Inchcape Shipping Services (ISS) has scooped the first new commercial drilling project to be awarded in Tanzania in recent years. ISS was appointed by Paragon Offshore in Houston to work on a new drilling campaign off the Songo Songo Islands.

The maritime and cargo services provider's scope of work includes husbandry, crew logistics, visa assistance and arranging marine and air charters.


Paragon Offshore, a provider of standard specification offshore drilling services, is deploying jack-up rig M826 on the nine-month campaign for PanAfrican Energy Tanzania, the country's first natural gas producer.


M826 arrived at the field on board the semi-submersible vessel, OHT Falcon. "The opportunity to support this drilling campaign takes ISS to the next level in the oil and gas support service sector in Tanzania and boosts our future growth plans," said TS Mahesh, general manager of ISS Tanzania.
