BHP Billiton employs Diamond drilling rig

Drilling contractor Diamond Offshore has reportedly been awarded a contract with the Australian energy company BHP Billiton for the semi-submersible drilling rig Ocean Monarch. 

According to data from VesselsValue, BHP Billiton has hired Diamond Offshore’s semi-sub rig for a six-month contract starting April 1 until September 30, 2017. No details are available regarding the rig’s dayrate.

Prior to this contract, the semi-sub worked for Quadrant Energy on its drilling program offshore Australia, including Roc-2 and Phoenix appraisal well, under a $410,000 dayrate.

The ultra deepwater rig, of an Enhanced Victory Class, was built in 1974 and upgraded in 2008.

Offshore Energy Today has reached out to BHP Billiton and Diamond Offshore seeking confirmation and further details about the rig’s contract. We are yet to receive any response.
