Maersk Drilling secures extensions for jackup pair

Maersk Drilling has been awarded contract extensions for two jackup rigs in the North Sea.

Maersk Resolve has secured a contract extension from Wintershall Noordzee for the drilling of a third well in the ongoing drilling campaign in the North Sea. The rig is currently drilling in the UK part of the North Sea and will soon move to the Dutch sector to drill a second well. The duration of the contract extension is around 90 days.

Maersk Resolute has been awarded an extension by Petrogas E&P Netherlands, which covers two work overs at the Haven platform and brings the contract duration from the current 140 days to about 155 days.

“I am pleased that our services have been well received by Wintershall Noordzee as well as Petrogas E&P Netherlands. Both customer relationships are new and it is very rewarding to be able to leverage our extensive experience in the North Sea and support our customers’ business by delivering safe and efficient drilling operations with rigs and crews that are prepared to work across the UK, Dutch and Danish parts of the North Sea,” said Lars Østergaard, Maersk Drilling’s chief commercial officer.
