BP awards Maersk Drilling three-well contract offshore Trinidad
Published by Nicholas Woodroof,
The value of the firm contract is approximately US$78 million, including a mobilisation fee. The contract contains an additional one-well option.
“It is obviously exciting for us to see Maersk Discoverer go to Trinidad for BP, for whom the rig has performed successful operations offshore Egypt for the last six years, including the shallowest water well ever drilled in dynamic positioning mode for both BP and Maersk Drilling which delivered significant cost savings to the customer. We are very pleased that BP is recognising Maersk Discoverer’s qualities by re-signing the rig for this new campaign,” says COO Morten Kelstrup of Maersk Drilling.
The Maersk Discoverer is a DSS-21 column-stabilised dynamically positioned semi-submersible drilling rig, able to operate in water depths up to 10 000 ft. It is currently operating offshore Egypt.
