Maersk Viking Starts Gulf of Mexico Operations

Maersk Drilling’s first ultra deepwater drillship, Maersk Viking, has started operations at the Julia Field.

Maersk Viking will conduct the operations in the US Gulf of Mexico for ExxonMobil with duration of three years.

Featuring dual derrick and large subsea work and storage areas, the drillship design allows for efficient well construction and field development activities through offline activities.

ExxonMobil is the operator of Julia oil field, which is located 200 miles south of New Orleans, Louisiana.

The oil field is scheduled to be brought on stream in 2016, with an initial production capacity of 34,000 barrels of oil per day.
