Sunday, November 15, 2015   |   Deepsea Metro I   |   12,000 ft.   Drillship
Vietgazprom exercised the first of two options on for the Deepsea Metro I (UDW drillship). The exercise of this option extends the contract by an additional 40 days and keeps the rig busy through early February 2016. Vietgazprom is reported to have made two gas discoveries offshore Vietnam in Blocks 130 and 131 using the Deepsea Metro I. The operator will return to the first well to conduct well tests.

Operations have concluded on Yinka Folawiyo Petroleum's Aje field offshore Nigeria and the Scarabeo 3 (midwater semisub) has been released. Subsea trees for both the Aje-4 an Aje-5 have been installed and the well suspended pending connection to the oil production facilities. Production is expected to commence by the end of January 2016. Saipem's Scarabeo 3 will now demobilize to Almeria, Spain.

Monday, November 16, 2015   |   Noble Bully I   |   10,000 ft.   Drillship
Thruster maintenance has been completed on UDW drillship Noble Bully I.

Shell has the drillship under contract to March 2018 and also has three, one-year options availble.

Tuesday, November 17, 2015   |   Songa Equinox   |   1,640 ft.   Semisub
Songa Offshore received notice from DSME related to the first Cat D semisub, Songa Equinox, asserting that Songa pay $179 million along with an additional payment for liquidated damages in the amount of $22 million. The claim is related to alleged cost overruns and additional work related to the Songa Equinox construction project. DSME is alleging that there were inherent errors and omissions in the design documents. Songa has made an initial review of the claim and feels the claim is without merit and it is their view that DSME is responsible for the delays.

Tuesday, November 17, 2015   |   Maersk Convincer   |   375 ft.   Jackup
Maersk Drilling's Maersk Convincer (375' IC) has completed operations for Petronas offshore Malaysia and has been released.
