Maersk Valiant Starts Operations in US Gulf of Mexico

Maersk Drilling’s second drillship, Maersk Valiant, has started operations in the US Gulf of Mexico, the Company informed through their social media.

Maersk Valiant has began a two year contract with ConocoPhillips and Marathon Oil Corporation.

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

With the advanced positioning control system, the ship can automatically maintain a fixed position in severe weather conditions with waves of up to 11 metres and wind speeds of up to 26 metres per second.

Equipped with Multi Machine Control on the drill floor, the high degree of automation ensures safe operation and consistent performance.

The drillship was delivered in April from Samsung Heavy Industries (SHI) shipyard in South Korea.
