Maersk Drilling orders jack-up for USD 650 million

Maersk Drilling adds to its order book once again, as the company has placed an order for a new jack-up rig for delivery in mid-2016. The rig will be deployed in the North Sea on a BP contract.

Maersk Drilling has ordered a new jack-up rig for delivery in 2016, and the company has already secured one customer, BP, which will use the rig for the final work in the near-obsolete Valhall oil field in the northern part of the North Sea.

Maersk Drilling will pay USD 650 million for the rig, which will be built at the Daewoo shipyard in South Korea. The Maersk subsidiary has also secured options for two additional rigs for delivery in 2016 and 2017.
