Maersk Drilling secures contract for 'Maersk Voyager'

Maersk Drilling has been awarded a contract from Eni Ghana Exploration and Production Ltd., a subsidiary of Eni, for employment of the newbuild drillship Maersk Voyager. The firm contract period is 3.5 years with an option to extend by one year. The total estimated revenue from the firm contract is USD545 million including mobilisation and cost escalations. Maersk Voyager will work on the Offshore Cape Three Points (OCTP) Project offshore Ghana with expected commencement in July 2015. “We are very pleased to be chosen by Eni and its partners Vitol and GNPC for this project offshore Ghana and we look forward to working together with the OCTP JV over the next 3.5 years. West Africa has been a strategic focus area for Maersk Drilling, since we embarked on our deepwater expansion, and with this contract we expand our presence in the promising West African deepwater market,” says Claus V. Hemmingsen, CEO in Maersk Drilling and member of the Executive Board in the Maersk Group. Maersk Voyager is the last in a series of four ultra-deepwater drillships in Maersk Drilling’s rig fleet. The rig was delivered on 6 February 2015 from the Samsung Heavy Industries (SHI) shipyard in Geoje-Si in South-Korea. The four drillships represent a total investment of USD2.6 billion.

Maersk Drilling names fourth UDW drillship

Maersk Drilling’s fourth ultra-deepwater drillship was named Thursday morning in a ceremony held at the Samsung Heavy Industries (SHI) shipyard in Geoje-Si, South Korea. Lene Berg, wife of Gregers Kudsk, Vice President in Maersk Drilling, had the honour of naming the drillship ‘Maersk Voyager’. ‘Maersk Voyager’ is the fourth in a series of four ultra-deepwater drillships. The four drillships were ordered in 2011 and represent a total investment of USD2.6 billion. ‘Maersk Voyager’ is scheduled to be delivered from SHI in Q4 2014. ‘Maersk Voyager’ remains without a first contract. “The short term floater market is challenged, but we remain in discussions with several oil companies regarding short term as well as long term drilling campaigns for the ‘Maersk Voyager’ ,” says Claus V. Hemmingsen, CEO in Maersk Drilling and member of the Executive Board in the Maersk Group.
