The Maersk Developer drills an exploratory well into Statoil's Martin prospect, about 3,000 feet below the surface in the Gulf of Mexico. Two years ago, Statoil paid $157 million for the right to drill into a single 9-square-mile block at the site and the Norwegian company is now spending about $1.1 million a day to rent the Developer, supply the drilling rig and pay for other contractors.
