Energy XXI hires Blake rig for GoM work

Energy XXI hires Blake rig for GoM workBlake International Rigs has secured a contract for its Blake Rig 651. The rig will mobilize to Energy XXI’s South Pass 77 “C” platform in the U.S. Gulf of Mexico.

The initial contract term is for one well, which is scheduled to start in late April following a 30 day make ready period at Blake’s Houma facility.

This initial term should keep the rig under contract into June 2017, and Energy XXI retains the right to any option wells. The rig owner said the Blake Rig 651 had recently completed a 14 well P&A program with a major oil company in the US Gulf of Mexico.

“Securing this contract with Energy XXI has revitalized our company’s energy in this trying market,” says Beau Blake, President and CEO of Blake International Rigs, LLC.

The Blake Rig 651 is a 650 horse power self-erecting modular platform rig. Blake International Rigs owns and operates a fleet of 10 platform rigs in the US and Mexico.
