Maersk Drilling has won a contract worth $34million with Shell Malaysia.
The work, using the Maersk Viking drillship, will cover four development wells at the Gumusut-Kakap project off Malaysia.
Maersk Drilling said the work is expected to begin in December this year, lasting an estimated 150 days.
The contract covers five additional one-well options for work off Malaysia, the Phillipines, and Brunei Darussalam.
Chief operating officer Morten Kelstrup said: “We’re delighted to confirm that Maersk Viking will return to Shell Malaysia for work on the Gumusut-Kakap project. In this way, we will be able to build further on the great collaboration that the rig’s highly capable crew has established during its current campaign with Brunei Shell Petroleum.”
