Gulf International Services’ (GIS) subsidiary Gulf Drilling International (GDI) has signed a definitive agreement with Seadrill for the utilisation of the offshore drilling rig ‘West Tucana’.
As a part of the agreement, the ‘West Tucana’, a ‘JU 2000E’ class, will be contracted to work in Qatar offshore for a firm period of 440 days with options in place for further extensions, a GIS spokesman said. 
GDI also announced that it has signed a strategic cooperation agreement with Seadrill that provides the foundation for future synergies in Qatar’s offshore market between both the parties.
“This partnership with Seadrill will lead to greater strategic and competitive advantage strengthening our position as the leader in Qatar Offshore drilling market,” according to Mubarak A al-Hajri, GDI chief executive.
By bringing together Seadrill’s high-specification jack up fleet and GDI’s diverse customer base, he said the combination of experience would ensure delivering market-leading level of operational and safety performance to clients. 
Seadrill chief executive Anton Dibowitz said the company was delighted to have signed a strategic cooperation agreement and an initial contract for the West Tucana with GDI. 
“We have the scale and high specification fleet required for work now and into the future in such an important growing market as Qatar,” he added.
