Maersk Drilling has secured a contract for the semi-submersible rig Mærsk Developer which will be employed by Petronas Suriname Exploration & Production B.V. for a one-well exploration campaign in Block 52 offshore Suriname.

The contract is expected to commence in 3Q/4Q20, with an estimated duration of 75 days. The value of the firm contract is approximately US$20.4 million, including integrated drilling services, mobilisation and demobilisation fees. The contract includes an additional one-well option.

“It is great to work for Petronas again with a quick reactivation of Mærsk Developer for this campaign in the exciting Suriname-Guyana basin. This will showcase our ability to smoothly and efficiently establish operations in new jurisdictions, as Mærsk Developer will become the first of our rigs to operate offshore Suriname,” said COO Morten Kelstrup of Maersk Drilling.

The Mærsk Developer is a DSS-21 column-stabilised dynamically positioned semi-submersible rig, able to operate in water depths up to 10 000 ft. It is currently warm-stacked in Aruba after ending its latest contract offshore Trinidad and Tobago.
