Atwood Oceanics, Inc. has announced that one of its subsidiaries has agreed to a four month extension on the jackup rig Atwood Orca with Mubadala Petroleum for drilling operations offshore Thailand.
The new contract is at an undisclosed day rate that is higher than the current day rate, and it includes two four-month options that are priced at successively higher day rates than the new firm day rate.
As a result of this contract, the expected earliest availability of the Atwood Orca is August 2018, assuming no options are exercised. If both options were to be exercised, the drilling programme would be expected to extend until approximately April 2019.
