Saipem wins US$160 million in drilling contracts

Scarabeo 9

Saipem has been awarded new drilling contracts by unnamed clients offshore Romania and Abu Dhabi worth over US$160 million.

Under the Romanian contract, the company’s semi-submersible rig Scarabeo 9 (pictured) will drill a well in Romania’s Black Sea waters. Work is expected to commence in the fourth quarter of 2019.

Meanwhile, the newly awarded Abu Dhabi contract is in direct continuation of an existing contract for Saipem’s jack-up Perro Negro 8. The vessel will continue to work with the same client for an additional four years.
