Maersk Deepwater Drillship Gets Tullow Ghana Gig

Maersk Drilling has been awarded a four-year contract for the deepwater drillship Maersk Venturer by Tullow Ghana.

The contract, which was signed December 2017, is expected to begin in February 2018 and covers development drilling on the Jubilee and TEN fields offshore Ghana.

Maersk Venturer is currently in transit for the job offshore Ghana thereby further strengthening Maersk Drilling’s presence in the region.

“I am very pleased that Maersk Drilling will be mobilising another deepwater rig for this significant job in a strategically important region. It is our first contract with Tullow Ghana and it is a testament to our successful operational track record in Ghana. We are firmly committed to supporting Tullow Ghana’s business through safe and efficient drilling operations,” says Lars Ostergaard, chief commercial officer of Maersk Drilling.

Maersk Rigworld Ghana, Maersk Drilling’s joint venture with Rigworld International Services, will be providing local services in connection with the operation and thereby drive local job creation and competency development.

“After more than 2.5 years of operation in Ghana with Maersk Voyager, Maersk Drilling now operates with over 50 percent local staff and a wide network of local suppliers,” says Lars Østergaard.
