Recent Offshore Rig Activity Notes Sample
Below is a sample of the 14 rig activity notes from the last week available to RigLogix subscribers.
May 18   |   Atwood Achiever   |   12,000 ft.   Drillship
Kosmos Energy encountered additional hydrocarbons while taking their Tortue-1 exploration well to a deeper depth to evaluate the deeper Albian stratigraphy. Preliminary analysis indicates the well intersected approximately 32 feet of net hydrocarbon pay in the lower Albian section, which is currently interpreted to be gas. Atwood's newbuild drillship, Atwood Achiever, drilled the well to a total depth of approximately 16,732 feet in just over 8,800 feet of water in Mauritania's Block C8. The Tortue discovery area has also been renamed Ahmeyim.

May 18   |   Ocean BlackRhino   |   12,000 ft.   Drillship
Diamond Offshore newbuild Ocean BlackRhino (UDW drillship) has begun its initial operations, going to work for Murphy E&P in the company's Sea Eagle field in Mississippi Canyon Block 692. Murphy has the rig for the remaining 265 days of a previous contract it had with UDW semisub Ocean Confidence, and the operator could extend the contract to June. Upon completion of the Murphy work, the rig will have an idle period until 4Q/2016 when it begin a three-year contract in the Gulf of Mexico with Hess Corporation.

The new rate will be in the mid-$170s versus the current rate in the mid-$230s. OMV is currently using the rig for its development program offshore New Zealand.
