Halliburton and Petrofac collaborate on Maersk’s drilling programme

Maersk Drilling has signed agreements with oil field services providers Halliburton and Petrofac to partner on an exploration drilling programme.

Maersk Drilling has signed agreements with oil field services providers Halliburton and Petrofac to partner on an exploration drilling programme.

The drilling programme will be delivered under Maersk’s master alliance agreement with exploration firm Seapulse.

Maersk will provide fully integrated drilling services including rigs and all other associated services for a global offshore oil and gas exploration programme. Petrofac will deliver well management services, while Halliburton will provide integrated well services throughout the drilling programme.

Maersk Drilling COO Morten Kelstrup said: “Halliburton and Petrofac bring strong operational expertise and decades of experience in delivering and integrating oilfield services, which will further contribute to the ability to mitigate the operator cost risk associated with exploration drilling whilst we foster new ways of collaborating across the supply chain.”

The Seapulse portfolio covers deepwater and shallow water wells across several regions, with two wells in the UK North Sea scheduled to start drilling in the second half of next year.

A customised process covering all phases right from development to the delivery of a well has been developed to maximise efficiency as well as remove waste through a new approach to collaboration in the oil and gas industry.
