Chevron is in the hunt for a jackup to undertake drilling operations in one of its core plays in Nigeria.

The US supermajor and its joint venture partner NNPC Limited are pre-qualifying rig owners for a drilling campaign that is due to start in the second quarter of 2023.

According to documentation, the charter contract would run for a fixed term of two years, with a one-year extension option.

Interested parties have until (tomorrow) 22 November to submit their responses.
