Maersk Drilling says that its third drillship, Maersk Venturer (UDW drillship), which was delivered Sept. 25 from the Samsung Heavy Industries (SHI) shipyard in Geoje-Si in South-Korea, has secured a short term contract with oil major Total.

Maersk Venturer will commence a one well program offshore Malaysia with an estimated duration of 45 days with potential extension up to 40 days. The drilling program is expected to start in December following acceptance testing. The estimated revenue from the firm 45 days period is $17 million.

“Total is a highly valued customer of Maersk Drilling and we see the contract award as a reflection of our long and good collaboration over the years. We are happy to get the Maersk Venturer out working, especially with the short term challenges in the floater market, and we remain confident that we can secure another good contract for the drillship, when this short term contracts ends,” says Claus V. Hemmingsen, CEO in Maersk Drilling and member of the Executive Board in the Maersk Group.
