Danish offshore drilling rig operator Maersk Drilling has secured another one-well contract from Aker BP for the ‘Maersk Integrator’ ultra-harsh environment CJ70 XLE jack-up rig.

In January, Aker BP awarded a two-well contract extension Maersk for its Integrator rig.

The current contract for the Maersk Integrator is a direct continuation of its previously announced work scope.

The $21.6m contract excludes a potential performance bonus and comes with a further one-well option. It has an expected performance period of 85 days.

It is expected to start next April.

According to the drilling rig operator, the original contract forms part of the Aker BP jack-up alliance agreement with Maersk Drilling and service provider oil field Halliburton. Maersk signed this agreement in 2017.

Maersk Drilling COO Morten Kelstrup said: “We are pleased to add one more well to Maersk Integrator’s work scope for Aker BP in 2021. Our alliance with Aker BP and Halliburton is enabling new ways of working as one team across the value chain, and our close collaboration also allows greater flexibility in future well planning, so additional wells can be committed to as plans mature.

“We have achieved impressive efficiency gains in the alliance, and this also translates into a reduction of the CO2 emissions associated with drilling. The upgrades currently being performed on Maersk Integrator will improve our emissions profile even further.”

Maersk specifically designed the Integrator rig for operations in the North Sea.

The jack-up will move to the Ivar Aasen field offshore Norway and begin works this month.
