August 11   |   GSP Magellan   |   350 ft.   Jackup
GSP has expanded its fleet of jackups to eight units with the acquisition of the GSF Magellan (350' ILC) from Transocean. GSP plans has renamed the rig GSP Magellan. The F&G L-780 MOD V-designed unit is rated to work in water depths up to 350' with a rated drilling depth capacity of 35,000' and entered service in 1990. Most recently the rig worked offshore Nigeria for ExxonMobil.

August 12   |   Gold Star   |   9,000 ft.   Semisub
Petrobras confirmed the extension of their Jupiter discovery with the success of their Apollonia appraisal well which verified a 285' oil column containing similar fluids to those found in the first Jupiter well. Well 3-RJS-732 is being drilled using Queiroz Galvao's Gold Star (UDW semisub). While drilling is still ongoing, a hydrocarbon column of approximately 1,027' has been encountered starting at a depth of approximately 16,949'. Proposed TD of the well is approximately 18,700'.

August 14   |   Energy Endeavour   |   300 ft.   Jackup
Northern Offshore is reasonably confident that Wintershall will exercise the last option on their contract for the Energy Endeavour (300' ILC). If exercised, then the firm work with Wintershall will keep the rig busy through March 2015. The dayrate for the extension will remain the same, in the low-$160s. Upon completion of the Wintershall contract and a short shipyard stay, the rig is then expected to go to work offshore Russia for Rosneft.

August 14   |   Energy Enhancer   |   300 ft.   Jackup
Northern Offshore expects Maersk Oil to exercise their remaining one year option for the Energy Enhancer (300' ILC). The expected dayrate for the option is in the mid-$160s and includes market adjustments. Currently, the rig is carrying out a workover program offshore Denmark. Should the option be exercised, then the rig would have firm work through July 2016. Northern Offshore also noted that they expect to keep the rig busy past July 2016 as Maersk Oil has additional work in the area.
