The contract is expected to commence in March 2021, with an estimated duration of 35 days. The firm contract value is approximately US$9 million, including additional services provided and a mobilisation fee.

The contract also includes an additional one-well option.

Maersk Viking is currently warm-stacked in Johor, Malaysia, after completing a drilling campaign in the Bay of Bengal earlier this year.
