Latest Rig Data Updates
December 5   |   COSLPioneer   |   2,500 ft.   Semisub
Statoil extended the suspension period for the COSLPioneer (midwater semisub) for an additional 7.5 months. Initially, the suspension period was to be lifted at the end of 2014. Statoil says in addition to overcapacity in their rig portfolio, they have also been unable to mature alternative tasks for the unit. This means the rig will not resume operations for Statoil until sometime during 3Q2015. The COSLPioneer's firm contract with Statoil runs through August 2016.
December 5   |   Scarabeo 5   |   6,561 ft.   Semisub
Saipem's Scarabeo 5 (midwater semisub) contract suspension has been extended for an additional 1.5 months. Initially, the suspension period was to be lifted at the end of 2014. Statoil says in addition to overcapacity in their rig portfolio, they have also been unable to mature alternative tasks for the unit. This means the rig will not resume operations for Statoil until mid-1Q2015. The Scarabeo 5's firm contract with Statoil runs through July 2017.
