 Seadrill has been awarded a two-well contract by Red Sea Petroleum Operating Company (RSPOC) for the jackup rig West Prospero. The assignment is for operations offshore Sudan, with mobilization scheduled for December this year. The drilling assignment is expected to take approximately six months, and the estimated contract value is approximately US$49.9 million, inclusive of mobilization and demobilization.
