Blake International Rigs, LLC and Anadarko Petroleum Corporation have entered into a contract to mobilize the Blake Rig 1007 to the Gunnison Spar located in the deepwater US Gulf of Mexico. The Blake Rig 1007 has been located at Blake’s Houma facility preparing for this project and is currently mobilizing to the Gunnison Spar. Well Operations are expected to commence in December 2017.
“We are thrilled to activate another rig this year and excited to work with the Anadarko team again,” says Jeff Kessler, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Blake International Rigs. “Indicators show an increase in rig activity in the US Gulf of Mexico during 2018 and this contract affirms an increase in rig utilization for Blake International Rigs.”
The Blake Rig 1007 is a 1000 horse power self-erecting modular platform rig. Blake International Rigs owns and operates a fleet of 10 Platform Rigs in the US and Mexico.
