Intrepid: Maximising performance in Norway

In June 2018, operator AkerBP was in a need of a rig to perform an appraisal of the Hanz field. At that time, Maersk Intrepid
was assigned to Equinor at the Martin Linge field.

Intrepid: Maximising performance in Norway

Within only three weeks, a sublet between the parties was agreed – the rig was moved from Martin Linge to Hanz, and spud was done.
