The piece of news was shared by the rig owner Japan Drilling Company (JDC) on Tuesday. JDC said Premier Oil Natuna Sea had started drilling on April 25 offshore Natuna, Indonesia.

JDC entered into a drilling contract with Premier Oil for the provision of the Hakuryu-11 jack-up drilling rig in late November 2018.

The driller at the time said the contract was for four firm wells, and that the work would take approximately 173 days.

The rig is of the KFELS Super B Class and is a 3-leg self-elevating cantilever type drilling rig. It has a maximum operating water depth of 425 feet and a maximum drilling depth of 35,000 feet. The Hakuryu-11 was constructed by Keppel FELS Limited, Singapore, in May 2013.

Apart from the contract with Premier Oil, JDC has recently secured a five-well drilling contract for the Hakuryu-11 offshore Vung Tau, Vietnam. The contract with an undisclosed operator is expected to start in October 2019 and will take 300 days to complete. The operator will have an option to extend for one more well, which should take another 60 days.
