Fossil Energy – Drilling
Maersk Resolute has secured an additional five-well drilling work scope with Petrogas E&P Netherlands.
An agreement has been reached to convert an option on its current contract, which will employ the harsh environment jack-up to drill three wells at the A15 field and two wells at the B10 field, both located offshore the Netherlands.
The drilling campaign will also employ the onboard high-efficiency Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) system which uses ammonia injection to convert NOx into harmless water and nitrogen, expectedly reducing NOx emissions by up to 98%.
“We’re pleased to confirm that Maersk Resolute will continue on a drilling campaign after completing its current plugging and abandonment work scope. This contract is yet another testament to our excellent collaborative relationship with Petrogas, which includes a shared commitment to protecting the environment – something that has a particularly high priority in operations in the Dutch North Sea,” says COO Morten Kelstrup of Maersk Drilling.
