Statoil will suspend its contract with the Songa Trym upon completion of the rig's current well, Tarvos. Beginning in November 2015 and running through early 2016, the rig will be warm stacked and receive a reduced dayrate of $283,000 during this period. The Songa Trym entered service in 1976 and is an Aker H-3 modified semisub capable of working in water depths up to 1,312 feet.

Market reports are that Woodside Petroleum will drill up to three wells in the Beagle Sub-basin in the NW Shelf off Australia. The program is said to consist of two firm wells plus an option. The Skippy Rock-1 and Buttons Crossing-1 are both in Permit WA-472-P, while the Big Brooks-1 lies in Permit WA-473-P. The two WA-472-P wells are required to be drilled by May 2016. Water depths at all three locations are in 180-300 feet of water, but it is expected that Woodside will use a semi for the work, likely the DW semi Atwood Eagle (5,000') which it has under contract to September 2016.
In the Exmouth Sub-basin in Permit WA-483-P, Woodside also has a May 2016 deadline to drill the Swell-1. The operator could use Diamond Offshore DW semi Ocean Apex (6,000'), which it will pick up in the second quarter, but the rig could be assigned to another drilling program.
