Raising the Mast

On Tuesday March 10th, 2015 Citadel celebrated the raising of the mast on Rig 3. Attached is a video clip capturing this milestone event. Through wonders of technology and time lapse video, a process that took several hours in real time has been condensed into 30 seconds. According to Dave Vogel, VP of Operations, a first time mast raising usually takes three to four hours as work crews meticulously test and check to make sure everything works as it should. Once deployed to the field the crew of Rig 3 will accomplish the same task in a little more than 20 minutes. Click on the link to see the video Citadel Rig 3 Mast Raise
