Oil and gas company Spirit Energy has hired Maersk Drilling's jack-up rig Maersk Resolve to drill one development well in the UK North Sea. The well will be drilled at the Grove North East area. 

The contract is scheduled to start in March 2021, with an estimated duration of 131 days. 

According to Maersk, the firm contract value for the rig is approximately USD 11.3 million, including additional services, mobilization, and demobilization.  Bassoe Offshore has estimated the day rate is around $80,000.

The contract includes an option to add plugging and abandonment of one well.

Morten Kelstrup, COO of Maersk Drilling said: "We’re excited to be able to build on our relationship with Spirit Energy with our first UK well for the customer, for whom we previously completed a highly successful subsea development campaign in Norway. 

"We will surely be able to continue our close collaboration and mutual focus on operational excellence, and in addition the campaign at Grove will benefit from Maersk Resolve’s experience with safely and efficiently drilling challenging Zechstein formations as part of the rig’s latest assignment in Dutch waters."

Maersk Resolve is a 350ft, Gusto-engineered MSC CJ50  jack-up rig delivered in 2009. It completed a campaign offshore the Netherlands in October 2020 and is currently warm-stacked in Esbjerg, Denmark.
