Jack-up rig specialist Shelf Drilling has found work for its Trident VIII jack-up.

Shelf on Tuesday said the rig had been awarded a contract for 245 days firm term in Nigeria by Amni.

The contract for the 1981-built rig is expected to start in Q1 2019. Amni will have an option to extend for another 110 days.

The Trident VIII rig, which has been idle following the completion of a contract with Chevron Nigeria in December 2017, is currently undergoing upgrade and contract preparation in Bahrain.

Shelf bought the rig in 2012 as part of a 38 jack-up rig package acquired from Transocean in 2012.
