Paragon Offshore has acquired a stake equal to 93.5 percent of the outstanding shares in Prospector Offshore Drilling and will launch a mandatory offer for the remaining outstanding share of Prospector within four weeks. Paragon acquired the shares at a price of 14.50 NOK per share or $2.313 per share based on the US Dollar to Norwegian Kroner exchange rate of $1 US to 6.80 NOK. Prospector Offshore has a fleet of five high spec, harsh environment F&G JU-2000E designed jackup capable of working in every market except Norway. All units are rated to work in water depths up to 400 feet with a rated drilling depth of 35,000 feet. The first two rigs have been delivered are contracted to Total for work in the UK North Sea.

CIMC Raffles delivered the COSLProspector (DW semisub) to China Oilfield Services Ltd. This is the fourth in a newbuild program that began in 2005. Classed by DNV and CCS, the unit is designed to work in operating temperatures of minus 20 degrees Celsius in arctic areas such as the Barents and Norwegian Seas. The rig will now undergo acceptance testing which is expected to last into early 2015. COSL initially marketed this rig for work in the North Sea. However, with the slowdown in activity it appears that the rig will likely go to work offshore China.
Ensco's ENSCO 109 (350' ILC) is en route from Singapore to Angola. Upon arrival in Angola the rig will begin a three year contract with Chevron at a rate in the low-$170s.
Ensco's ENSCO 5006 (DW semisub) is now expected to finish its shipyard stay at Keppel FELS in Singapore by mid-December. This means the commencement for the rig's 40-month contract with Inpex offshore Australia will now start in January 2015. The scope of work includes upgrades to the BOP, mud systems, living quarters and customer-requested upgrades.
Hercules Offshore received a 30-day contract from Bois d'Arc for work in the Gulf of Mexico. Expected commencement is in early December following completion of the rig's current contract with Energy XXI. Dayrate for the contract is in the mid-$100s.
