change text size

Vantage Drilling Company reported that the Titanium Explorer (UDW drillship), commenced operations in the U.S. Gulf of Mexico early the morning of Dec. 7, the company said in a Friday statement.

According to Rigzone's RigLogix Database, the Titanium Explorer is under contract to Brazilian state energy company Petrobras through December 2020. The rig is working at the Chinook field on Walker Ridge Block 249.

Vantage, a Cayman Islands exempted company, is an offshore drilling contractor, with an owned fleet of four Baker Marine Pacific Class 375 ultra-premium jackup drilling rigs and two ultra-deepwater drillships, the Platinum Explorer and the Titanium Explorer, as well as an additional ultra-deepwater drillship, the Tungsten Explorer, now under construction.

Vantage's primary business is to contract drilling units, related equipment and work crews primarily on a dayrate basis to drill oil and natural gas wells. Vantage also provides construction supervision services for, and will operate and manage, drilling units owned by others. Through its fleet of seven owned and managed drilling units, Vantage is a provider of offshore contract drilling services globally to major, national and large independent oil and natural gas companies.
