Maersk Drilling has won a contract with Aker BP for the ultra-harsh environment jack-up rig Maersk Reacher.
Aker BP will use the Maersk Reacher to assist with well intervention, stimulation, and accommodation at the Valhall field offshore Norway.
The contract is expected to begin in July 2021 and has a firm duration of 270 days. The firm contract value is approximately $33.4 million. The contract contains options to add up to 90 days of additional intervention work at the Valhall field.
The drilling company said that the Maersk Reacher jack-up would be reactivated with reduced drilling equipment and a specific focus on delivering the most efficient well intervention and stimulation set-up including a reduced crew level compared to standard drilling mode.
