HCML Pre-Qualifies Five Contractors

Husky-CNOOC have pre-qualified five contractors for their long drawn out tender for a jackup for its 7+2 well drilling program in the MBH, MDA and MDK fields in the Madura Sea. Four con-tractors, Apexindo, JDC, COSL and Seadrill had already qualified from a previous failed tender and were joined by KS Drilling. The 18 month charter is to begin in December this year. HCML have been criti-cized by SKKMIGAS for continually favouring Chinese contractors so it will be interesting to see the results this time around.

HCML Resumes Jackup Tender

Husky-CNOOC have at last resumed their tender for a jackup for its Madura BD PSC drilling cam-paign. The pre-qualification part of the tender has been on hold since March and has now closed. Indeed the entire tender process is threatening to be one of the longest running saga’s in Indonesian tendering history having begun in November 2015, and Indonesia has had many such long running sagas’. The 7+2 well program is currently set to start in December, having already passed the original commencement date, and ten (10) contractors are understood to be participating in the tender this time with Apexindo, [...]

HCML’s Jackup Tender Has Been Suspended

HCML has exclusively used COSL for its last three campaigns, in 2011, 2012 and 2015. Tendering for this requirement began way back in November [...]
