Both contracts were awarded by Baker Hughes, under a primary term of two years firm and an option to extend for another six months. The contracts are expected to commence in 2Q20 upon expiry of current contracts, with similar daily rates to the company's existing fleet in Kuwait.
Commenting on the contract award, Dr. Mohamed Farouk, Chief Executive Officer of ADES International Holding, said: "We are extremely pleased to secure our first onshore deep drilling LSTK contract with Baker Hughes. This represents a major step towards our strategic objectives and underpins ADES's ability to deliver drilling services under a LSTK contracting model. In addition, it further supports our expansion into the high potential market of Kuwait following the Weatherford acquisition and offers greater backlog visibility."
