Maersk Drilling has won a new contract for jackup rig Maersk Resolute from Petrogas E&P Netherlands.
The 2008-built rig, which is currently warm stacked in Denmark, will drill two wells at the A12 block in the Dutch sector of the North Sea.
The contract is expected to take 75 days, with options available to Petrogras to extend for up to five additional wells.
Michael Reimer Mortensen, head of global sales at Maersk Drilling, commented: “Despite the current market situation, Maersk Drilling continues to be able to build on its contract backlog. We look forward to working closely with our customer Petrogas E&P Netherlands in delivering an efficient and safe drilling campaign.”
Operations are scheduled to commence in June 2017.
