UMW said last week that the contract entails the provision of drilling rig services for Hess’ drilling program in the North Malay Basin.

The company will assign its UMW Naga 8 jack-up drilling rig for this contract. The deal is for a duration of eighteen months with an option to extend for an additional twelve months.
