Transocean orders newbuild drillship on award of five year contract from Chevron

Transocean has announced the award of a new five year drilling contract from Chevron with work expected to begin in the USA in Q1 2017 and a contract value of US$1.1 billion. The contract award has led Transocean to order a newbuild drillship from Daewoo Shipbuilding and Marine Engineering’s (DSME) Okpo yard in South Korea. The newbuild drillship is expected to be delivered in Q4 2016 at a total cost of US$725 million and upon delivery the unit will mobilise to the USA to begin the contract with Chevron. The newbuild drillship will be the seventh ultra-deepwater rig that Transocean currently has under construction at DSME once construction work begins and the order helps the company’s push towards redefining itself as a high-specification rig contractor.
