JDC said on Monday that the contract was awarded by Premier Oil Natuna Sea B.V. to JDC’s subsidiary company, P.T. Japan Drilling Indonesia.

The company added that the deal was awarded to both P.T. Japan Drilling and a shipping company in Indonesia.

The Hakuryu-11 was contracted for four firm wells. It will work approximately 173 days offshore Natuna, Indonesia. The JDC also said that the contract was estimated to begin around March or April 2019.

The last time Offshore Energy Today reported on the Hakuryu-11 was in July 2018. At the time, JDC’s rig started drilling under its contract in Vietnam with the Hoang Long Joint Operating Company and Hoan Vu Joint Operating Company.

The Hakuryu-11 was scheduled to move to H5-WHP located in Te Giac Trang (TGT) offshore field following the completion of the drilling.

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.
