According to data from Bassoe Analytics, the Indian company last week signed contracts with Jindal Drilling for two jack-up rigs Jindal Star and Discovery I.

Indian drilling contractor Aban Offshore also scored two rig deals for its Aban IV and Aban III jack-up rigs.

Both Jindal and Aban have issued statements confirming deals with ONGC. Jindal issued a statement in which it said it had won a deal with ONGC with a “value over $57 million
(approx. Rs. 407 crores).”

Offshore contractor Greatship secured work Greatdrill Chitra jack-up, and Shelf Drilling, as we reported last week, secured work for Ron Tappmeyer jack-up.

Per Bassoe Data, all the rigs have been hired on three-year contracts.
