By OGJ editors

Al-Khafji Joint Operations has awarded Seadrill, Hamilton, Bermuda, long-term contracts for two rigs to work in the Persian Gulf in the Saudi Arabia-Kuwait Partitioned Neutral Zone.

The West Triton and Offshore Resolute will work under 3-year contracts plus the time required to mobilize to the gulf from present assignments in Southeast Asia. Each contract includes an option for KJO to extend the term for a further 1 year.

The Neutral Zone part of the gulf contains Dorra gas field and the oil fields of Lulu, Hout, and Khafji. Khafji is the Neutral Zone extension of giant Safaniyah field off Saudi Arabia.
