ConocoPhillips extends Maersk jackup contract

July 27, 2015

Maersk Drilling has been awarded a contract extension for the jackup rig Mærsk Innovator with ConocoPhillips Norway for work on the Eldfisk field, part of the greater Ekofisk area, offshore Norway.

The duration of the contract extension is 16 months. The extension is in direct continuation of the current contract expiring in February 2017, thus keeping the rig continuously contracted until June 2018. The estimated value of the contract extension is US$142 million.

“We are very pleased to see the Mærsk Innovator continue to work for ConocoPhillips,” says Claus V. Hemmingsen, CEO in Maersk Drilling and member of the executive board in the Maersk Group.

Mærsk Innovator has been working for ConocoPhillips since 2010.
