For the quarter, our rig teams achieved excellent operational and safety performance that yielded strong revenue recognition, while our fleet transformation progressed with the successful delivery and start-up of the Atwood Mako and the successful delivery and mobilization of the Atwood Condor to the Gulf of Mexico. We also secured our first drilling services agreement for the Atwood Advantage, and we committed to build a third ultra-deepwater drillship to join our growing high-specification rig fleet.”
