Offshore drilling contractor Stena Drilling has signed a drilling contract for its Stena Don semi-submersible drilling rig with the oilfield services giant Petrofac.

Stena Drilling said in a social media post on Monday that the drilling operations were due to start in July. 

Petrofac will use the rig to drill one well on the UK Continental Shelf on behalf of an unnamed oil and gas company. 

The well is expected to take 76 days to complete. Bassoe Offshore has estimated the dayrate to be around $170000.

"Stena Drilling are delighted to secure work in the UKCS for Stena Don, and look forward to working with Petrofac to complete a safe and efficient campaign in 2021," Stena Drilling said.
