Maersk Drilling Wins One-well Job from MOL

Monday, November 11, 2019

Maersk Drilling said it has secured a one-well contract for the ultra-harsh environment jack-up rig Maersk Interceptor with MOL Norge for exploration drilling on PL617 in the Southern North Sea, operated by MOL Norge in partnership with Wintershall Dea and OMV Norge.

The $16.5 million contract is expected to commence in August 2020, with an estimated duration of 60 days.

The Maersk Interceptor is an ultra-harsh environment CJ70 XLE jack-up, designed for year-round operations in the North Sea. It was delivered in 2013 and is currently operating offshore Norway.

“We are happy to be working together with MOL on this exploration campaign with exciting prospects. Our XLE rigs have an excellent track record of delivering high-efficiency drilling on the Norwegian Continental Shelf, and we expect to build on this in our first direct collaboration with MOL,” says Morten Kelstrup, COO of Maersk Drilling.
