The hybrid jack-up rig Maersk Intrepid has been awarded a contract for the drilling of three wells and plugging of one on the Martin Linge field. Maersk Drilling will also get a framework contract with Equinor.
The value of the contract is estimated at some USD 100 million, including rig modifications and upgrades and exclusive of intervention activities, integrated services and any incentive payments for safe and efficient operations. The new contract is scheduled to take effect in September. The contract includes an option to drill one well.
“We are pleased about the agreement we have entered into with Maersk Drilling. It builds on our long-term collaboration and facilitates continuous improvements in safety and efficient progress. This creates value for all parties,” says Peggy Krantz-Underland, Equinor’s chief procurement officer.
