Maersk Drilling and Eni JDPA 11-106 B.V. (Eni) as operator of the JPDA 11-106 Joint Venture have signed a one-well contract for the semi-submersible rig Maersk Deliverer for exploration drilling in the Timor Sea. The estimated duration of the firm contract is two months, expected to commence in March 2019. The contract contains an option for an additional well with an expected duration of an additional two months.

The Maersk Deliverer is currently warm-stacked in Labuan, Malaysia, after completing a well programme in March 2018. The rig, which was built in 2009 and is able to drill at water depths of up to 3,000 meters, is expected to mobilise into the Timor Sea in early 2019.

“We are very pleased to contribute to Eni’s exploration programme. This is a great opportunity for M?rsk Deliverer,” says CCIO Morten Kelstrup of Maersk Drilling.

As part of executing the drilling campaign, Maersk Drilling will be using a quota of local personnel and procuring goods and services from local suppliers, hereby contributing to the local economy.
