Seadrill completes hat-trick of drillship contracts

Seadrill Partners has secured a contract for the 2008-built drillship West Polaris in southern Asia.

The contract is for one year and valued at around $72m. It will commence around the first quarter of 2020, after the vessel completes a contract in Gabon as announced a few days ago.

In additional to the two West Polaris contracts, parent company Seadrill Limited also announced a contract for 2010-built drillship West Gemini off West Africa.
