Maersk Drilling has been awarded contracts by Repsol Exploración Mexico for a two-well project utilising 2013-built drillship Maersk Valiant at block 10 and 29, offshore Mexico in the Gulf of Mexico.
The contracts are scheduled to commence in March 2020 and have an expected duration of 138 days. Two one-well options are also included.
Morten Kelstrup, CCIO of Maersk Drilling, commented: “We are very pleased to expand our working relationship with Repsol through this commitment, which also adds to our presence in the exciting Mexican deepwater market following the recently disclosed contract for Mærsk Developer. In addition, it’s worth noting that Maersk Drilling’s entire floater fleet is now signed up for current or future work, meaning that all floaters are now activated and can be available for additional contracts with limited to no stacking period.”
Maersk Valiant is currently warm-stacked at Port Fourchon, Louisiana.
