Pacific Drilling’s deepwater drillship, the Pacific Bora, was awarded a contract for drilling in Nigeria by Nigerian Agip Exploration. The term of the contract is for one firm well plus two additional option wells.

The contract is expected to commence in mid to late November 2018 and firm contract backlog is estimated at $9 million.

Pacific Drilling CEO Paul Reese commented, “On the heels of our previous announcement of new work for Pacific Santa Ana in Mauritania, we are pleased to have secured this contract for the Bora which reflects our substantial experience in Nigeria and our uninterrupted commitment to providing exceptional drilling services to our clients.”

The drillship is currently off the coast of Abidjan, Côte d’Ivoire.
