Pacific Drilling Takes Delivery of New Drillship from Samsung Heavy, South Korea

Pacific Drilling received on-time delivery of its newest drillship, the Pacific Scirocco. The Pacific Scirocco, which is scheduled to complete its final rig readiness testing over the coming month, is equipped with some of the most current technology including dual activity drilling capabilities and 12,000 feet water depth drilling capacity.

CEO Chris Beckett stated, “We are proud to be involved in the construction of this new addition to our expanding fleet. The Pacific Scirocco boasts some of the most modern equipment and highest capabilities of any drillship in the market, and as stated previously we expect it to sign a contract with a top quality E&P company in the near future.”

With its best-in-class drillships and highly experienced team, Pacific Drilling is a fast growing company that is dedicated to becoming the preferred ultra-deepwater drilling contractor. Pacific Drilling’s fleet of four of the newest ultra-deepwater drillships is expected to be in operation by the end of 2011, with two additional drillships on order at Samsung for delivery during 2013.
