Equinor Energy AS has exercised the option to add development drilling of one additional well at the Martin Linge field offshore Norway to the work scope of the low-emission rig Maersk Intrepid.
The plan is that in direct continuation of the low-emission rig’s previously announced work scope with a different operator, Maersk Integrator will return to Aker BP’s Ivar Aasen field for a two-well campaign expected to commence in Q3 2021.
Maersk Drilling’s first low-emission rig shows very promising emission reduction levels after entering operations in Norway
Maersk Intrepid's first month of operations on Martin Linge produced an initial data point of reducing fuel consumption and CO2 emissions by approximately 25% compared to the baseline average for the rig. In addition, NOx emissions were reduced by approximately 95%, an improvement from the original target of 90%.
In direct continuation of its previously announced work scope, the the low-emission jack-up rig Maersk Integrator will drill one exploration well in the Ommadawn prospect in PL 970 offshore Norway.
As part of an overall sustainability strategy, Maersk Drilling has set an ambitious target of lowering the intensity of CO2 emissions from its drilling operations by 50% by 2030. The target is supported by Maersk Drilling’s strategic focus on efficiency gains, which also leads to reduced CO2 emissions.
Maersk Drilling secures additional one-well contract for low-emission rig under the Aker BP alliance
In direct continuation of its previously announced work scope, Maersk Integrator will move to the Ula field offshore Norway to drill the Ula F – Producer 1 well. The contract is expected to commence in April 2021.
Maersk Drilling awarded one-well contract for low-emission rig Maersk Integrator under Aker BP alliance
Maersk Drilling has secured an additional one-well contract from Aker BP for the low-emission jack-up rig Maersk Integrator. In direct continuation of its current work scope, the rig will move to the Tambar field offshore Norway, with work expected to commence in February 2021.
Maersk Drilling secures 11-month extension for low-emission rig and signs Master Framework Agreement with Equinor
Maersk Drilling has been awarded a four-well extension for the low-emission jack-up rig Maersk Intrepid to continue working for Equinor offshore Norway.
Maersk Drilling awarded two-well contract extension for low-emission rig Maersk Integrator under Aker BP alliance
In direct continuation of the rig’s current workscope, Maersk Integrator will move to the Ivar Aasen field offshore Norway to drill two wells, with work expected to commence in October 2020. The extension has an estimated duration of 93 days and a contract value of approximately USD 25.5m, excluding a potential performance bonus.
Maersk Drilling has secured a contract extension offshore Norway for the ultra-harsh environment jack-up rig Maersk Integrator from Aker BP. In continuation of the rig’s current workscope for Aker BP, the Maersk Integrator will drill a well at the Tambar field in the Southern North Sea.
Today, Maersk Drilling announces that Equinor has exercised two options of two months each for the Maersk Intrepid jack-up rig to continue working at the Martin Linge field offshore Norway. In addition, the parties have signed a further two-month extension in direct continuation of Maersk Intrepid’s current contract, which in total will keep the rig on contract until the end of August 2020. The options and extension have a total contract value of USD 60m.
Combining hybrid power, data intelligence and cleaning technology, the Maersk Intrepid will push the boundaries for low-emission drilling on conventionally powered offshore rigs.
