Recent Offshore Rig Activity Notes Sample
Below is a sample of the 10 rig activity notes from the last week available to RigLogix subscribers.
May 15   |   Leiv Eiriksson   |   8,200 ft.   Semisub
OMV's wildcat well, Bjaaland, has been classed as a dry hole. Well 7324/8-2 is located south of the Wisting discovery, 7324/8-1 in PL 537 in the Barents Sea. This is the fourth exploration well drilled in this license with two of three previous wells encountering oil. Next the Leiv Eiriksson (UDW semisub) will move to PL 591 drill Tullow's Zumba prospect.

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.

May 18   |   ENSCO 107   |   400 ft.   Jackup
Beginning in June 2015 and running through the end of the contract in July 2015, the ENSCO 107 (400' IC) will receive a reduced dayrate. 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. Once the rig is released, she will be available for work in the region.

May 15   |   ENSCO 8504   |   10,000 ft.   Semisub
Inpex has released the ENSCO 8504 (UDW semisub) from its last well and the rig is now mobilizing to a location in Malaysia where it will await further work. Inpex sublet the rig from Shell to drill two deepwater wells offshore Malaysia.
