The harsh-environment jackup will perform well maintenance and drill a side track of the A9 well at the P9 Horizon field in the Dutch North Sea.
The contract is expected to commence in April 2021, with an estimated duration of 45 days. The contract value is approximately $4.5 million.
Before the contract starts, the Maersk Resolute will be equipped with a high-efficiency selective catalytic reduction (SCR) system which uses ammonia injection to convert NOx into harmless water and nitrogen. This is expected to reduce NOx emissions by up to 98%. The design will include an advanced control interface between engines and SCR units, the company said.
The rig is currently warm-stacked in Esbjerg, Denmark, after completing a campaign offshore the Netherlands in December 2019.
After completing this assignment, the jackup will move on to the two-well contract for Dana Petroleum Netherlands B.V.
