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.
The West Prospero, which is currently idle in Indonesia, will be upgraded with high-pressure, high-temperature capabilities prior to moving to Sudan on a heavy-lift vessel.
