According to Maersk Drilling, the contract covers the drilling and completion of three wells, and the suspension of one well, all located in Block E of the East Coast Marine Area (ECMA).

Scheduled to begin in January 2018, the firm contract duration is estimated at eight to nine months with options for more than two years of additional work. The contract also includes the provision by Maersk Drilling of additional in-field integrated services.

“Working with Shell on this project and contributing to delivering gas production in Trinidad is very exciting for Maersk Drilling. The project scope involves a range of integrated services and we look forward to taking on the responsibility for these while deploying Maersk Developer’s advanced drilling capabilities,” says Chief Commercial Officer of Maersk Drilling Lars Østergaard.

The Mærsk Developer is currently in Aruba having completed its last drilling campaign for Repsol Columbia in June 2017.

Maersk Drilling also announced two contract extensions for the Maersk Resolve and Maersk Resolute jackup drilling rigs.

Wintershall Noordzee will extend the Maersk Resolve contract from the original 86 days to a minimum of 160-190 days, with further options included.

Petrogas E&P Netherlands extended the high efficiency jackup Maersk Resolute’s deal to cover plug and abandonment work at the Q1 Halfweg platform, bringing the contract from 95 days up to a total of 140 days. The total duration of the two extensions is up to 150 days.
