Maersk Drilling has secured a contract with Aker BP, on behalf of the Ivar Aasen license, who will employ the ultra-harsh environment jack-up rig Maersk Invincible for the drilling of three infill wells at the Ivar Aasen field offshore Norway.
Since 28 May, the diesel engines on the Maersk Invincible have been switched off. The rig is now running entirely on hydropower from the shore.
Maersk Drilling’s fourth XL Enhanced ultra harsh environment jack-up was named Friday morning at a ceremony held at the Daewoo Shipbuilding and Marine Engineering (DSME) shipyard in South Korea. Mrs. Bente Norheim, wife of Jan Norheim, Managing Director of BP Norge, honoured Maersk Drilling by naming the rig Maersk Invincible.
