Here is the Ensco 5006 together with the Farstad UT712s Far Stream and Far Strait. The rig is capable of operating in 7500 ft of water and so it seems likely that the Far Strait is running an anchor and the Far Stream is J-hooking, or preparing to J-hook to reduce the weight on the system. If you need to know about the technique best to buy my book Supply Ship Operations.
