Mærsk Deliverer, an ultra-deepwater semi-submersible rig delivered in 2010, is currently operating offshore Timor-Leste.
“We are very pleased to have secured long-term work for Mærsk Deliverer adding significantly to our contract backlog in the floater segment. Inpex-operated Ichthys LNG Project is one of Australia’s largest resources projects and we look forward to supporting a successful operation for Inpex and joint venture participants,” says Jørn Madsen, CEO of Maersk Drilling. “With this contract award we retain a well-balanced forward coverage in the floater market with long-term contracts while maintaining exposure to a market recovery.”
The contract award will not have an impact on the guidance for 2019.
