Otto Energy Ltd has received confirmation from farm-in partner, BHP Billiton, that it has issued a termination notice for Transocean's rig Deepwater Expedition (UDW drillship) due to the rig not passing key acceptance tests.

Service Contract 55 is currently in Sub-Phase 4 which requires the drilling of the Cinco-1 deepwater well by August 5, 2012.
