Recent Offshore Rig Activity Notes Sample
Below is a sample of the 16 rig activity notes from the last week available to RigLogix subscribers.
Sunday, August 16, 2015   |   Maersk Venturer   |   12,000 ft.   Drillship
Otto Energy reports that while their Hawkeye-1 exploration logged hydrocarbons between 8,890' and 8,979', below 8,979' water was inferred from log observations in a reservoir sequence of good quality. The amount of hydrocarbons discovered are at the very low end of expectations and not considered economic for development. The Maersk Venturer (UDW drillship) drilled the well ahead of schedule and under budget.

Monday, August 24, 2015   |   Songa Endurance   |   1,640 ft.   Semisub
Songa Offshore has taken delivery of the Songa Endurance (midwater semisub) from Daewoo Shipbuilding in South Korea. The rig will depart South Korea shortly for Norway and upon arrival will undergo final acceptance testing. Statoil hired the rig in July 2011 on an eight-year contract which includes 4 x 3-year options. Drilling operations are expected to commence by year-end and Statoil plans to deploy the unit on the Troll field. This is the second of four Cat-D rigs to be delivered.

Tuesday, August 25, 2015   |   Rowan Gorilla III   |   450 ft.   Jackup
Jackup Rowan Gorilla III (450'-IC) is expected to arrive at the company's Sabine Pass yard in the next few days. The rig recently completed a rig sharing contract in Trinidad with EOG Resources, Repsol and Trinity Exploration. While Rowan currently does not have work in place for the rig, channel checks suggest the rig will likely secure a contract shortly.

Tuesday, August 25, 2015   |   Hercules 205   |   200 ft.   Jackup
Hercules Offshore has been awarded a one-well contract from ENI for the Hercules 205 (200' MC) for work in the Gulf of Mexico on Ship Shoal 138. The 20-day P&A job has a dayrate in the low-$60s.

Wednesday, August 26, 2015   |   UMW Naga 6   |   375 ft.   Jackup
UMW Standard Drilling jackup UMW Naga 6 (375'-IC) completed a contract with PETRONAS Carigali off Vietnam and was released. With no future work lined up, the rig will be stacked in Singapore. It had been working for PETRONAS since it was delivered in October 2014.
