Brunei Shell Petroleum has exercised a £35 million contract extension option for the Maersk Convincer jack-up rig for work offshore Brunei Darussalam.
The extension has a duration of 602 days and will commence in May 2021 in direct continuation of the rig’s current work scope, which means that Maersk Convincer is now contracted by BSP until the end of 2022.
Morten Kelstrup, COO of Maersk Drilling, said: “We’re delighted to firm up this long-term extension for Maersk Convincer which is a confirmation of the strong and productive collaboration that has been established between the customer and the rig team.
“The rig has again and again delivered brilliant operational excellence for BSP, including a strong focus on safety and successful efforts to reduce fuel consumption and thereby limit the rig’s carbon footprint. We look forward to continuing this outstanding partnership.”
Maersk Convincer is a Baker Pacific Class 375 cantilever jack-up designed for year-round operation which was delivered in 2008.
The rig is currently operating on the Seria field offshore Brunei Darussalam and was named Jack-up Rig of the Year by Shell in both 2018 and 2019.
