Recent Offshore Rig Activity Notes Sample
Below is a sample of the 24 rig activity notes from the last week available to RigLogix subscribers.
Thursday, November 12, 2015   |   Eirik Raude   |   10,000 ft.   Semisub
Premier Oil intends to re-drill the Isobel/Elaine prospect instead of their Jayne East prospect offshore the Falkland Islands once the Eirik Raude (UDW semisub) completes operations in the South Falklands basin. Forward-looking plans then call for the Chatham exploration well, in PL032, to be drilled. This well will be designed to appraise the expected gas cap in the west of the Sea Lion field. Noble Energy and Premier Oil are sharing the Eirik Raude under a contract that is expected to end early 2016.

Thursday, November 12, 2015   |   West Telesto   |   400 ft.   Jackup
Hibiscus Petroleum reports that its Sea Lion-1 prospect, located in permit VIC/P57 offshore Australia, failed to encounter commercial hydrocarbons. The West Telesto (400' IC) will be released once P&A work on the well has been completed.

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.

Monday, November 16, 2015   |   Scarabeo 3   |   1,790 ft.   Semisub
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. The rig has departed the BAE Systems yard in Mobile and is on standby in Grand Isle Block 92, where it is expected to remain through the end of 2015. Shell has the drillship under contract to March 2018 and also has three, one-year options availble.
