Equinor has exercised two options of two months each for the Maersk Intrepid jackup rig. As a result, the rig is now contracted to Equinor until the end of February 2020. Two options of two months each remain undeclared on the contract.

In the four-month extension period, the Maersk Intrepid is expected to be utilized for accommodation activities at the Martin Linge field on the Norwegian continental shelf.
“We appreciate the continued opportunity to contribute to the expected opening of production on Martin Linge in 2020,” Morten Kelstrup, CCIO of Maersk Drilling, said. “It’s great to be able to continue our long-standing cooperation with Equinor with this renewed commitment.”
