The first contract is to deploy a rig off India's coast for one year and is likely to fetch $41.0 million, the offshore drilling and oilfield services provider said in a statement to the Bombay Stock Exchange. The agreement has an option to extend the contract period, it added.
The second contract is to deploy a rig in Qatar for six weeks, and the company expects $2.5 million from it, Aban said.
