Shelf Drilling secures jackup contract extension

Dubai-based Shelf Drilling has secured a three-year contract extension for its jackup rig High Island VII in direct continuation of its current contract for drilling operations in the Arabian Gulf.

The new contract also includes a two-year option.

Earlier this week, Shelf Drilling was also awarded contract extentions for another four jackup rigs High Island II, High Island IV, Main Pass I and Main Pass IV from Saudi Aramco.

Shelf Drilling currently operates a fleet of 37 jackup drilling rigs.
