Blake International Rigs, LLC and Anadarko Petroleum Corporation have entered into a contract to mobilize the Blake Rig 1007 onto the Constitution Spar at Green Canyon 680 A. The contract term is three wells, to commence following the Drilling Unit’s current contract term.
The Blake Rig 1007 recently completed a project for Anadarko on the Marco Polo TLP, and is currently working for Apache Corporation, on the Ewing Banks 826A platform to fulfill a two well contract.
The remainder of the Apache contract, followed by the Anadarko project, is expected to keep the rig busy through July 2014. “We are very excited about working with Anadarko again, and continuing to build upon our existing relationship. This contract will mark the third project that Anadarko has awarded Blake International since we entered into the Deepwater market in 2011. This contract also strengthens our goal to be the preferred platform rig contractor in the Gulf of Mexico”, says Beau Blake, President and CEO of Blake International.
Blake International Rigs owns and operates a fleet of 10 Platform Rigs in the US and Mexico.
