The Discoverer Clear Leader left the DSME shipyard in South Korea last night and is bound for Singapore and then Durban, South Africa for a crew change. The rig is expected to arrive in the U.S. Gulf of Mexico in about 60 days. Upon arrival in the Gulf of Mexico and customer acceptance testing, the rig will begin a five-year contract with Chevron.
The Discoverer Clear Leader is designed to work in water depths up to 12,000' and has a rated drilling depth capacity of 40,000'. It is the first of Transocean’s 10 ultra-deepwater newbuild rigs to leave the shipyard, including five enhanced Enterprise-class newbuild drillships.
