First Contract for Energy Drilling in Malaysia

May 15th, 2019

Energy Drilling has received a Letter of Award on the 15th May 2019 from EnQuest PLC to perform drilling services on their Seligi Field offshore Peninsula Malaysia with the TAD EDrill-2. The contract calls for two firm wells plus two option wells. EDrill-2 is currently in Kim Heng Shipyard, Singapore and preparations are underway to mobilise the rig in early July.

“The award by EnQuest marks our first entry into Malaysia since the founding of the company. We are very pleased that EnQuest has chosen Energy Drilling against stiff competition from other providers of tender assist rigs.” says Marcus Chew, CEO of Energy Drilling.

EDrill-2 has worked continuously for PTTEPI, Myanmar on the Zawtika Field since its delivery in December 2015. It has performed very well in the challenging weather conditions offshore Myanmar, especially during the monsoon seasons. The crew of EDrill-2, under the leadership of rig manager, Graeme Bain are looking forward to the new challenges in Malaysia.
