Danish offshore driller Maersk Drilling has been awarded a letter of intent by an unnamed operator for its jack-up rig Maersk Resilient.

The driller said in its fleet status report on Tuesday that the contract for the Maersk Resilient is scheduled to start in April 2019 and last for four months.

The rig’s previous contract was with Maersk Oil in Denmark, which was later transferred to French oil major Total after Maersk Oil became part of Total. This three-year deal, with a value of $110 million, expired in October 2018.

The Maersk Resilient was the first in a series of four identical high efficiency jack-ups. The rig, of a MSC CJ50-X100 MC design, was built by Keppel FELS in 2008.

It is fully equipped for high pressure/high temperature drilling and is designed for year-round operation in the North Sea, in water depths up to 107 m (350 ft.) with an available leg length below hull of 148 m (485 ft.). The rig can accommodate 120 people.
