Danish driller Maersk Drilling has been awarded a one-well extension with Petrogas for its Maersk Resolute jack-up rig.
Petrogas E&P Netherlands B.V. has exercised an option with Maersk Drilling to extend the current contract of jack-up rig Maersk Resolute, the rig owner informed on Monday.
The contract extension is for one well, A15 on the Dutch continental shelf, with an expected duration of 21 days. The exercised option extends Maersk Resolute’s confirmed work scope into March 2019.
The jack-up Maersk Resolute, which was launched in 2008, re-started operations in the Dutch sector in June 2018, after it was originally reactivated from warm-stacking and worked in the sector from June to December 2017.
Maersk Resolute is currently on a rig-share contract between Petrogas, TAQA, and Dana Petroleum. There are now two remaining options in the contract – one with TAQA of approximately 72 days, and one with Petrogas of approximately 90 days.
