Maersk drilling secures one-well UK contract

Maersk Drilling has been awarded a contract from Spirit Energy for the harsh-environment jack-up rig Maersk Resolve to drill one development well at Grove North East in the UK North Sea.

The contract will start in March 2021, with an estimated term of 131 days.

The firm’s contract value is an additional USD 11.3 million, including additional services, mobilization and demobilization. The agreement includes the option of adding a good plug and drop.

“We’re excited to be able to build on our relationship with Spirit Energy with our first UK well for the customer, for whom we previously completed a highly successful subsea development campaign in Norway. We will surely be able to continue our close collaboration and mutual focus on operational excellence, and in addition the campaign at Grove will benefit from Maersk Resolve’s experience with safely and efficiently drilling challenging Zechstein formations as part of the rig’s latest assignment in Dutch waters,” says COO Morten Kelstrup of Maersk Drilling.
