The Maersk Resolve jack up rig has left Denmark’s Port of Esjberg and is heading for the Winchelsea II well in the UK’s North Sea.
Maersk Drilling secured a one-well contract with a duration of approximately 86 days with Wintershall Noordzee B.V. and has further options included. The Resolve had been warm-stacked in the Port of Esjberg since being terminated early from it’s last assignment with Dong in the Hejre field last September.
The Resolve was built in 2009 and is rated for a water depth of up to 350ft, with a drilling depth of 30,000ft. It forms part of Maersk Drilling’s fleet of 24 vessels including jack-ups, semi-submersibles and drillships.
