Maersk Resilient Starts Up in Dubai Waters

The Maersk Resilient arrived in United Arab Emirates waters on March 1, 2008, and following final preparations, the rig commenced operations for Dubai Petroleum Establishment. On April 21, Maersk Resilient headed off to its first operating location: the Fateh U platform in Dubai waters. For the first 6-12 months, the drilling program will mainly involve operations on existing platforms to allow the rig and crew a smooth start.

Maersk Resilient is contracted to Dubai Petroleum Establishment for three years.
