Maersk Drilling wins $19.5m deal with Aker BP

Maersk Integrator

Maersk Drilling has secured a $19.5 million contract to provide its Maersk Integrator rig to Norwegian firm Aker BP.

Maersk Integrator will return to Aker BP’s Ivar Aasen field for the two-well campaign, starting in Q3 2021.

The contract has an estimated duration of 73 days.

Maersk Integrator is contracted under the terms of the frame agreement that Maersk Drilling and Aker BP entered into in 2017.

The ultra-harsh environment jack-up rig is currently completing a series of upgrades to turn it into a hybrid, low-emission rig.

The upgrades are supported by a grant from the Norwegian NOx Fund and a separate compensation scheme agreed with Aker BP rewarding reductions in fuel consumption and reduced emissions.

Morten Kelstrup, COO of Maersk Drilling, said: “It’s great to add another two wells which shores up Maersk Integrator’s drilling programmes for all of 2021.

“We look forward to continuing our close collaboration with Aker BP and Halliburton in order to add to the efficiency gains realised by our alliance.

“This in itself lowers the CO2 emissions associated with drilling, and the low-emission upgrades will contribute further to delivering on our target of reducing the CO2 intensity from rig operations.”

Maersk Integrator is an ultra-harsh environment CJ70 XLE jack-up rig, designed for year-round operations in the North Sea.

It was delivered in 2015 and is currently operating offshore Norway.
