AOD cuts down jack-up day rates for Saudi Aramco

The rigs in question are AOD I, AOD II, and AOD III and their day rates will be reduced by 10 percent.

The operating day rate reductions are effective from April 1, 2015 through to March 31, 2016. This will reduce AOD’s backlog by approximately $20 million.

Mermaid’s associate company AOD under the management of Seadrill Limited was awarded a firm 3 year drilling services contract for all of its three jack-up rigs ‘AOD I’, ‘AOD II’ and ‘AOD III’ to provide drilling services to the Saudi Aramco for operations in offshore Saudi Arabia.

Each rig can work in water depths of up to 400ft, has a drilling depth rating of 30,000 feet and has accommodation for 150 personnel.

Starting in 2013 to 2016, the contracts came with options for the customer to extend such contracts for another one year to 2017.
