Maersk Drilling has signed two new contracts and one contract extension since the end of 1Q 2019.

One firm three-year contract is with Inpex Australia for the ultra-deepwater semisubmersible Mærsk Deliverer, starting in 2Q 2020, with two one-year extension options. Value of the firm period is $300 million, equivalent to a day rate of $266,200.

The other firm contract is for one month, with three additional one-well options, with AGM Petroleum Ghana for the ultra-deepwater drillship Maersk Viking. One of the options has already been exercised.

In addition, Maersk secured a 100-day extension from BP for the semisub Maersk Discoverer which will now continue operating offshore Egypt until November.
