Rowan secures contract for second newbuild drillship 'Rowan Resolute'

Rowan has secured a contract for the second of its four newbuild drillships that are currently being constructed by Hyundai in South Korea. The contract which is for a firm three year period has been signed with Anadarko Petroleum Corporation for the ‘Rowan Resolute’ drillship and is expected to begin once the unit has been delivered from the yard in Q3 2014, with a dayrate between US$607,000 and US$609,000. The contract award leaves Rowan with only two un-contracted newbuild drillships, the ‘Rowan Reliance’ and ‘Rowan Relentless’ which are due to be delivered from the yard in late 2014 and mid-2015.
