Maersk Drilling has secured a contract with Shell for the drilling company’s jack-up rig Maersk Resilient.
The contract is expected to take effect in the second half of the year for a duration of two months in direct continuation of an engagement with Nederlandse Aardolie Maatschappij in the Dutch part of the North Sea.
”We’re delighted to announce this contract which firms up Maersk Resilient’s drilling programme for most of 2022 and will allow the Resilient team to build even further on the excellent collaboration that was established with NAM and the Shell organisation during last year’s campaign at Galleon,” says Chief Operating Officer of Maersk Drilling Morten Kelstrup in a press release.
