Spanish energy giant Repsol’s Colombia division has awarded a drilling contract offshore the South American country to Maersk Drilling.
The Maersk Developer semisubmersible will be deployed to drill the Siluro-1 exploration well in shallow water (90 metres depth) in block RC-11 off Colombia’s Caribbean coast.
Copenhagen-based rig operator Maersk Drilling, a subsidiary of the Danish conglomerate AP Moller Maersk, estimates the single-well job will last 42 days.
The contracted fee is $12m, which includes mobilization and demobilization.
Work will begin in the second quarter of this year.
