MAERSK CONVINCER TAKES OVER MAERSK COMPLETER CONTRACT
Jack-up Maersk Convincer, currently finalising its five-yearly Special Period Survey (SPS) yard stay in Singapore, will be taking over a contract from its sister rig, the Maersk Completer, currently operating offshore Brunei.
The Maersk Completer is on contract with Brunei Shell Petroleum, and has been since November 2008. Before long, the Rig is scheduled to have its five-yearly Special Periodic Survey (SPS) yard stay, which means that operations for Brunei Shell Petroleum would have to be suspended while Maersk Completer conducts the yard stay, resulting in a delay in the drilling programme of about 45-60 days.
In order to limit impact to the customer’s drilling programme, and to reduce cost for both parties, Maersk Drilling is re-activating the warm-stacked Maersk Convincer, an identical Baker Marine 375ft jack-up. Maersk Convincer is currently finalising its own five-yearly SPS yard stay, and will be ready to leave for the field and take on the remainder of the work scope in August 2017.
The current contract is scheduled to end in October 2018, however, Brunei Shell Petroleum have options to extend the contract up to a total of three years. Maersk Convincer will take over operations once Maersk Completer has finalised current batch drilling operations. (Source: Maersk Drilling)
