ONE-Dyas B.V. has exercised an option to continue employing the harsh environment jack-up Maersk Resolute in the Dutch sector of the North Sea.

The one-well contract extension is expected to commence in May 2022, in direct continuation of the rig’s current work scope, with an estimated duration of 75 days. The contract value of the extension is approximately USD 6.3 million.

Maersk Resolute is a 350-foot, Gusto-engineered MSC CJ50 high-efficiency jack-up rig that was delivered in 2008.

It is currently operating in the Dutch sector of the North Sea where it is scheduled to commence a 19-month plugging and abandonment contract upon completion of its contract with ONE-Dyas.
