Borr Drilling has secured new contracts and extensions for five of its premium high-specification jack-ups and is activating another newbuild in anticipation of a further award.

Mexico’s state-owned Pemex has taken a pair of newbuild rigs, Galar and Njord, on contracts with a duration from February 2020 to July 2021 under the same integrated services structure as three other units it already has on contract with the Oslo-listed player.

Warm-stacked rig Idun has now secured a charter with the Hoang Long joint operating company for work off Vietnam starting this month with a duration to February 2020.
