Offshore driller Maersk Drilling has been awarded a contract for the semi-submersible rig Mærsk Deliverer with Eni for exploration well offshore Timor-Leste.

Maersk Drilling and Eni JDPA 11-106 B.V. (Eni) as operator of the JPDA 11-106 Joint Venture have signed a one-well contract for the semi-submersible rig Mærsk Deliverer for exploration drilling in the Timor Sea.

The driller said that the estimated duration of the firm contract is two months, expected to start in March 2019. The contract contains an option for an additional well with an expected duration of an additional two months.

The Mærsk Deliverer is currently warm-stacked in Labuan, Malaysia, after completing a well program in March 2018. The rig, which was built in 2009 and is able to drill at water depths of up to 3,000 meters, is expected to mobilize into the Timor Sea in early 2019.

“We are very pleased to contribute to Eni’s exploration program. This is a great opportunity for Mærsk Deliverer,” says CCIO Morten Kelstrup of Maersk Drilling.
