Ocean Rig delays delivery of two newbuild drillships

Ocean Rig UDW Inc (“Ocean Rig”) today released its financial results for Q1 2015. The company posted a profit of USD41.1 million for the first three months of 2015, recovering from last year’s USD1.5 million first quarter loss. However, Ocean Rig’s Chairman and Chief Executive officer George Economou warned that “the market remains challenging with limited visibility of new contracts and is likely to remain through the near term”. With reference to this the company took the decision to delay the delivery of the Ocean Rig Crete and Ocean Rig Amorgos newbuild drillships until Q1 2018 and Q1 2019. Both units had previously been ordered to be delivered in 2017.
