Borr Drilling Limited (BORR), in conjunction with the Nigerian partner company Valiant Energy Services West Africa Limited (Valiant), has received a letter of commitment from Total E&P Nigeria Limited for employment of its premium jack-up, Frigg. The project will be executed with Nigerian partner. The commitment is for a firm one (1) year period with possible extension, commencing in the third quarter of 2017.

The Frigg is a KFELS Super A Class High Specification jack-up, which entered into service in 2013. The unit, capable of operating in water depths of up to 400 ft and drilling to depths of 35,000 ft, is one of two premium jack-ups acquired by Borr in January this year.

'We are proud to have secured our first commitment well with a supermajor. We have during our first 180 days of operation recruited a highly competent organisation, built a solid management system and world class operational systems and procedures. We are pleased that these efforts are now recognised by Total E&P Nigeria and we are looking forward to establishing our presence as the leading operator of high specification jack-ups in the years to come.
