Petrobel terminates Shelf Drilling rig contract

UAE-based drilling rig operator Shelf Drilling has received a notification for the early termination of the contract for jackup rig Trident 16.

The contract end date for the jackup rig has been changed from February 2021 to early-August 2020.

The 1982-built Trident 16 has been chartered to Petrobel since 2015.

Earlier this month, Saudi Aramco suspended operations for Shelf Drilling’s High Island IV rig for a period of up to 12 months.
