The platform took a total of 8.6 million hours to build and it will towed away in the next few days to anchorage for final commissioning and inclining test, stability, etc.

The naming ceremony has held at Keppel FELS on January 30. ConocoPhillips Australia will be chartering the Floatel Superior upon delivery.
