The contract is expected to start in July with a duration of 21 months. The contract includes options to extend the duration by up to 27 months.
Maersk Reacher was delivered in 2009. It is currently operating offshore Norway where it is scheduled to be replaced in a rig swap with Maersk Integrator by early March 2022. Maersk Reacher will undergo a special periodic survey prior to commencing the contract with TotalEnergies.

ASA (36.8 %), and Nordsøfonden (20%). TotalEnergies is responsible for exploration and operation of DUC’s 15 producing fields.
