Maersk Drilling reports today its jack-up rig Maersk Resolute will continue to be employed by Hess until April 2016 after four one-well contract options were exercised.  The estimated value of the extension is approximately USD $75 million.

The rig is currently operating for Hess in the Danish sector of the North Sea at South Arne.

Maersk Resolute is the second in a series of four high efficiency 350ft jack-ups delivered in 2008-2009.
