Thursday, August 10, 2017   |   Pacific Bora   |   10,000 ft.   Drillship
Erin Energy says that it will commence drilling operations using UDW drillship Pacific Bora (12,000') at the Oyo field offshore Nigeria this week. The rig has already arrived at the Oyo-9 well location and is preparing to drill the well. The Company has the option to drill up to two additional wells with the Pacific Bora and it has already identified four drill-ready prospects.

Thursday, August 10, 2017   |   Deepsea Stavanger   |   10,000 ft.   Semisub
Further to a RigLogix report from 15 May, Aker BP has awarded a 9-month contract to Odfjell Drilling for the provision of UDW semi Deepsea Stavanger (10,000') for work in the Norwegian sector. Work under the contract is due to begin in February 2018 on completion of Wintershall's campaign with the rig and will complete in October 2018, before the rig moves to South Africa for a contract with Total. The contract is for exploration and development drilling at various locations in the Norwegian Sea and the Barents Sea, and the value is estimated up to $68 million (equating to a day rate of just under $252,000).

Thursday, August 10, 2017   |   Ocean Guardian   |   1,500 ft.   Semisub
Diamond Offshore MDW semi Ocean Guardian (1,500') has begun mobilizing from the port of Invergordon out to the UK North Sea in preparation for a new campaign with Azinor Catalyst. The campaign will cover the drilling of a well at the Partridge prospect in Block 14/11a, lasting for around 25 days. On conclusion of this, the rig is expected to return to Invergordon until starting its next deployment with Decipher Energy in mid-February 2018.
