During the quarter, Diamond recorded profit of $13.9 million, a decrease compared to profit of $136.4 million in the third quarter of 2015.

The driller’s revenues nearly halved during the third quarter of 2016 totaling $349.2 million versus revenues of $609.7 million in the same period last year.

As of September 30, 2016, the company’s total contracted backlog was $4.1 billion, which represents 27 rig years of work. Approximately 96% of the company’s available ultra-deepwater rig days for the remainder of 2016 are contracted.
