Maersk Drilling has been awarded a four-year contract by Tullow Ghana for 2014-built drillship Maersk Venturer.
The contract commences in February, and will see the vessel conducting development drilling on the Jubilee and TEN fields offshore Ghana.
Lars Ostergaard, chief commercial officer of Maersk Drilling, commented: “I am very pleased that Maersk Drilling will be mobilising another deepwater rig for this significant job in a strategically important region. It is our first contract with Tullow Ghana and it is a testament to our successful operational track record in Ghana. We are firmly committed to supporting Tullow Ghana’s business through safe and efficient drilling operations.”
The drillship is currently in transit to Ghana, having left Aruba just before Christmas.
