Drillship Maersk Viking has arrived Ghanaian Waters
Aker Energy announces the arrival of the Maersk Viking drillship at the Deepwater Tano Cape Three Points (DWT/CTP) block offshore Ghana.

“We are proud to announce the arrival of Maersk Viking in Ghanaian waters. The drillship arrival marks an important milestone towards the start of the upcoming drilling campaign. The Maersk Viking will commence drilling of the Pecan-4A appraisal well when all preparations have been completed,” says Country Manager Jan Helge Skogen.

Maersk Viking is an advanced ultra-deep water drillship, capable of drilling in water depths of 3,600 meters. Under its contract with Aker Energy, the rig will perform the drilling of the Pecan-4A appraisal well in a water depth of 2,674 meters, located approx. 70 miles off the coast of Ghana, in addition to two optional wells.

The drilling rig is owned by Maersk Drilling and features a drillship design with a dual derrick and large subsea work and storage areas, allowing for efficient well construction. With its advanced position control system, the ship automatically maintains a fixed position in severe weather conditions with waves up to 11 meters and wind speeds of up to 26 meters per second.

Aker Energy is the operator of the DWT/CTP block with a 50% participating interest. Aker Energy’s partners are LUKOIL (38%), the Ghana National Petroleum Corporation (GNPC) (10%) and Fueltrade (2%).
