Recent Offshore Rig Activity Notes Sample
Below is a sample of the 55 rig activity notes from the last week available to RigLogix subscribers.
Wednesday, July 12, 2017   |   Deepwater Pontus   |   12,000 ft.   Drillship
Following a June 28, 2017 RigLogix report, Transocean newbuild UDW drillship Deepwater Pontus (12,000') has been delivered by Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering (DSME) in South Korea. The rig, a DSME 12000 design, will begin mobilization to the Gulf of Mexico shortly, where it has a 10-year contract with Shell. Sister rig Deepwater Poseidon is scheduled to be delivered in early 2018 and will also operate under a 10-year contract with Shell. It will be the final delivery of 4 units ordered in September 2012.

Wednesday, July 12, 2017   |   ENSCO DS-10   |   12,000 ft.   Drillship
Newbuild UDW drillship ENSCO DS-10 (12,000') has been contracted by Shell Nigeria for a one-year contract with five one-year options. The new contract is expected to begin in the first quarter of 2018. Delivery of the newbuild from Samsung Heavy Industries in South Korea had been pushed back to 1Q/2019, but will now be accelerated to September 25, 2017. It will then undergo a period of acceptance testing before mobilizing to Nigeria to begin its maiden contract, believed to be at the Bonga Southwest and Aparo development. Remaining capital expenditures associated with the rig are around $190 million inclusive of a final milestone payment to the shipyard, an upgrade to add a second seven-ram blowout preventer, acceptance testing, capitalized interest and mobilization.

Wednesday, July 12, 2017   |   ENSCO DS-7   |   12,000 ft.   Drillship
UDW drillship ENSCO DS-7 (12,000') will return to work with Total in early August 2017 for a one-well plus one-well (priced) option contract offshore Cote d?Ivoire. The initial well in Block CI-100 will take around 60 days to drill and the rig could be occupied up until November this year. The rig has been stacked in Tenerife since Total early terminated its last contract in November 2017.

Wednesday, July 12, 2017   |   ENSCO DS-4   |   12,000 ft.   Drillship
Further to a RigLogix report from February 20, ENSCO has now confirmed that UDW drillship ENSCO DS-4 (10,000') will commence a two-year contract with Chevron offshore Nigeria in early August 2017, and that the operator also has a one-year option attached to the contract. ENSCO recently reactivated the rig following a period of preservation stacking in Tenerife. Reactivation expenses are expected to total $28 million and in addition to this $15 million of capital upgrades were added to the rig and are anticipated to benefit the asset over its remaining work life.

Wednesday, July 12, 2017   |   Scarabeo 5   |   6,562 ft.   Semisub
Market sources suggest that deepwater semi Scarabeo 5 (6,562') has now completed its long-term contract with Statoil offshore Norway and the rig is now headed to the Westcon yard in Floro. The unit is expected to arrive at the yard for some minor maintenance work before being stacked while marketed for new opportunities in the region. The rig has most recently been working at the Byrding field and has been working with Statoil since 2003.
