Revenues in the third quarter of 2011 were $878.2 million, compared with revenues of $799.7 million in the third quarter of 2010.
"We are pleased with our third quarter results, which reflect continued strength in the market," said Larry Dickerson, President and Chief Executive Officer of Diamond Offshore. "Since the second quarter, we have added 14 new contracts, totaling 18 rig years or $1.4 billion of revenue backlog."
"We continue to execute on initiatives to contain operating costs and minimize unplanned rig repair downtime," said Dickerson. "Additionally, results benefited from revenues related to the mobilization of a rig from Brazil to the Gulf of Mexico and a shift of some planned downtime into the fourth quarter."
