While operating for Brunei Shell Petroleum, Maersk Completer has been recognized as Shell Jack Up of the Year in 2012 and 2013.

Maersk Completer is one of two Baker Marine 375-ft jackup rigs in Maersk Drilling’s fleet. It has been operating in Brunei since it was delivered from Jurong Shipyard in 2007, and since November 2008, Maersk Completer has been operating for Brunei Shell Petroleum.
