Brunei Shell Petroleum has awarded Maersk Drilling a four-year contract for the jackup Maersk Completer for operation offshore Brunei in Southeast Asia. The contract commences in December 2014 in direct continuation of its current contract with Brunei Shell Petroleum. The contract has options for extension up to a total of three years.

“We are very pleased to continue our cooperation with Brunei Shell Petroleum in Brunei,” said Claus V. Hemmingsen, CEO of Maersk Drilling and member of the executive board of the A.P. Moller – Maersk Group. “We see this contract as a recognition of our solid drilling performance and as a further strengthening of our relationship with Brunei Shell Petroleum,”

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.
