Transocean announces construction of two newbuild drillships

Transocean Ltd (Transocean) has announced that the company has contracted Sembcorp Marine’s Jurong Shipyard in Singapore for the construction of two newbuild ultra-deepwater drillships. The two newbuild drillships are to be constructed to Jurong Shipyard’s proprietary Jurong Espadon III rig design and are expected to be delivered from the yard in Q2 2017 and Q1 2018. Both units will be capable of operating in water depths up to 12,000ft whilst drilling down to maximum depths of 40,000ft and are capable of accommodating up to 220 personnel. Transocean will pay a total of US$1.24 billion for the construction of the assets including shipyard contracts, project management, owner-furnished equipment, inventory and capital spares. The two firm drillship orders come with three additional construction options, which must be exercised at various times within a 24 month period and offer similar financial terms as the currently placed firm orders.
