Island drilling rig land works in Great Britain, Great Britain

Ocean drilling company Island Drilling has won two contracts this week for the harsh environment drilling semi-submersible drilling rig Island Innovator, built in 2012.

The company said on Tuesday that it had won a contract with the Island Innovator Rig in the second quarter of 2022 at Orlando Field in Petrovak and Tailwind Energy in the North Sea of ​​the United Kingdom. Work will begin shortly after the completion of BP-7. A Norwegian drilling company said it was good for Dana Oil.

Roger Simmenes, CEO of Island Drilling, said:

The day after announcing the deal with Petrofac, Island Drilling said Wednesday that it had secured more drilling unit work with Maersk Decom, this time in Mauritania.

The agreement concerns the closure and abandonment of four companies and one optional well in the Banda and Tiof oil fields operated by Tullow Oil off the coast of Mauritania. The work scheduled to begin in the fourth quarter of 2022 is estimated to take a total of 75 days.

The Banda and Tiof fields are two oil and gas deposits off the coast of Mauritania at depths of 200m to 1,200m. Licenses are located approximately 53km and 84km off Nouakchott, Mauritania.

“With this agreement, the Island Innovator will continue to operate during the winter of 2022 and the rig will return to the North Sea in early 2023,” said Island Drilling.

Roger Simenes, CEO of Island Drilling, said:

Details regarding the financial terms of the two rig transactions were not shared.
