PHOTO: Jack-up Maersk Resolute returns to Danish port
- Exploration & Production
Denmark’s Port of Esbjerg shared a photo via social media on Monday showing the Maersk Resolute drilling rig back in the port after completing its latest contract.
The jack-up drilling rig Maersk Resolute is located next to another Maersk Drilling-owned rig, the Maersk Giant, which can also be seen in the photo.
According to the port, the 2008-built Maersk Resolute will have minor work done at quay-side while it is waiting for a new contract.
Before arriving to the port, the Resolute worked for Petrogas E&P Netherlands. The rig began work in June under a contract awarded back in January. The initial deal for the rig was for 75 days, and the first extension was for two months. The contract was extended one more time in October.
Before starting work for Petrogas, the rig was warm-stacked in the same port where it is currently located.
The Maersk Resolute has a gross tonnage of 15,589 and measures 70 meters in length and has a width of 68 meters.
