Maersk Convincer destined for Petronas Carigali offshore Malaysia

Posted on 20 September 2011

The Maersk Convincer will head to Malaysia later this year under a contract with Petronas Carigali. The 375-ft HPHT jackup has been working in Southeast Asia since 2008.

Maersk Drilling has signed a contract to provide Petronas Carigali with the 375-ft high-pressure, high-temperature (HPHT) jackup Maersk Convincer for work offshore Malaysia. The contract is for one year and includes two one-year options. The contract is expected to commence at the beginning of Q4 this year, following a two-year survey scheduled upon completion of the rig’s present contract in Vietnam.

“We see this contract as a good opportunity to demonstrate our skills within HPHT drilling, and we hope it can pave the way for strengthening our position in the flourishing Malaysian market,” said Claus V Hemmingsen, CEO of Maersk Drilling and member of the executive board of the AP Moller – Maersk Group.

Maersk Convincer is one of two BMC 375 jackups in Maersk’s fleet. The rig has been working in Southeast Asia since 2008.
