The company’s drillship Dhirubhai Deepwater KG2 has been awarded a four-well contract plus four-well option by Chevron offshore Australia via a term swap with the GSF Development Driller I.

ConocoPhillips has exercised a one-well option for semi-submersible rig Leiv Eriksson in the Norwegian North Sea.

Capricorn Norge exercised two one-well options for semi-submersible rig Transocean Arctic in the Norwegian North Sea and the rig was also awarded a two-well contract with DEA Norge.

CNR exercised two one-well options for drillship Discoverer India offshore Ivory Coast while Transocean 712 has been awarded a one-well option by ConocoPhillips offshore UK North Sea.

Transocean completed the acquisition of Ocean Rig in December last year, adding eight drillships and two semi-submersibles to its fleet.
