Maersk Drilling awarded drillship contract in Brunei

Maersk Drilling has secured a contract from Brunei Shell Petroleum for its drillship Maersk Viking to drill one deepwater exploration well offshore Brunei Darussalam.

The contract is expected to commence in March 2021, with an estimated duration of 35 days plus an additional one-well option. The firm contract value is around $9m.

“We’re happy to get this opportunity to add further to our great relationship with BSP. Our jack-up rig Maersk Convincer has been operating offshore Brunei Darussalam for several years now, and our performance has been recognised by Shell as Jack-up of the Year in both 2018 and 2019. I’m certain that Maersk Viking with its high-spec capabilities in combination with our fantastic crew will add even more value to our strong collaboration with BSP,” said Morten Kelstrup, COO, Maersk Drilling.
