Maersk Drilling has bagged a contract extension worth around $24.3 million for its Maersk Valiant drillship from TotalEnergies for drilling an additional well in Block 58 offshore Suriname.

Maersk Drilling expects the drilling of the additional well to begin this August/September. It will be in direct continuation of the current work scope of the Maersk Valiant drillship.
