Seadrill Partners, the limited liability company part of John Fredriksen’s Seadrill, has been awarded a new contract by Seadrill Canada for semi-submersible rig West Aquarius.
The two well contract, with a two well option, will see the rig operating off Canada from the second quarter of 2017.
Seadrill says the contract is worth around $14 million based on the firm contract period which is estimated at around 70 days, indicating a day rate of $200,000. It will also provide fuel and additional services at a fixed rate.
West Aquarius is coming off a contract in April at ExxonMobil’s Hibernia project off Canada where it was earning $615,000 per day.
