Maersk Deliverer will go to work for Total E&P Malaysia after completion of the previously announced contract with JX Nippon in Malaysia. The contract with JX Nippon is expected to commence during the fourth quarter of 2017, and will have an estimated duration of 30 days.

The exploration well is placed at a water depth of 2,835 m and the complexity of the well requires Managed Pressure Drilling (MPD) and Pressurized Mud Cap Drilling (PMCD) capabilities.

Since April last year, Maersk Deliverer has been warm stacked in Namibia. The technical upgrade of the rig with a MPD system is in response to strong demand for such equipment from customers in the region and underlines Maersk Drilling’s commitment to offering the most capable and advanced rigs. The reactivation of the rig has commenced with the main work scopes being carried out during its voyage to Malaysia, thereby saving valuable time. Maersk Deliverer is the fifth rig that Maersk Drilling has successfully reactivated from warm stacking within the past eight months.
