COPENHAGEN, Denmark – Repsol Exploración Mexico has contracted the drillship Maersk Valiant for campaigns in blocks 10 and 29 offshore Mexico.

The contracts, with a likely duration of 138 days, will start in March 2020. Both include one-well options in addition to the firm work scope.

The Maersk Valiant is a 7th generation drillship with managed pressure drilling capability. It is currently warm-stacked in Port Fourchon, Louisiana.

Morten Kelstrup of Maersk Drilling said: “It’s worth noting that Maersk Drilling’s entire floater fleet is now signed up for current or future work, meaning that all floaters are now activated and can be available for additional contracts with limited to no stacking period.”
