The company expects to complete the two-rig purchase in the second quarter of 2019. The other two rigs with bareboat charters are scheduled to start in August 2019.

The initial term of each bareboat charter is three years, which can be extended for three additional years upon mutual agreement between the parties.

Upon completion of the transaction, Shelf Drilling’s premium jack-up rig count will increase from 9 units to 13 units.
