Maersk Drilling has secured four-month extension for its jack-up rig Maersk Intrepid with Equinor exercising two options of two months each.
As a result, the rig is now contracted to Equinor until the end of February 2020. Two options of two months each remain undeclared on the contract.
In the four-month extension period, Maersk Intrepid is expected to be utilised for accommodation activities at the Martin Linge field on the Norwegian continental shelf.
Maersk Drilling CCIO Morten Kelstrup said: “We appreciate the continued opportunity to contribute to the expected opening of production on Martin Linge in 2020. It’s great to be able to continue our long-standing cooperation with Equinor with this renewed commitment.”
Maersk Intrepid is an ultra-harsh environment XL Enhanched jack-up rig which was the world’s largest jack-up when it was delivered in 2014. It has been deployed in Norwegian waters ever since, previously working on the Sleipner and Hanz fields.
