The Maersk Valiant is a high-specification 7th generation drillship with integrated MPD capability which was delivered in 2013. It is currently warm-stacked in Port Fourchon, Louisiana.

“We are very pleased to expand our working relationship with Repsol through this commitment, which also adds to our presence in the exciting Mexican deepwater market following the recently disclosed contract for Mærsk Developer. In addition, it's worth noting that Maersk Drilling’s entire floater fleet is now signed up for current or future work, meaning that all floaters are now activated and can be available for additional contracts with limited to no stacking period,” says CCIO Morten Kelstrup of Maersk Drilling.
