Rowan Provides Fleet Contract Status Update

HOUSTON, Jan. 17, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Rowan Companies plc ("Rowan" or the "Company") (NYSE: RDC) announced today that its monthly report of drilling rig status and contract information has been updated as of January 17, 2013.  The report titled "Monthly Fleet Status Report," can be found on the Company's website www.rowancompanies.com on the Home page.

Notable events in the current report include:

  • Cecil Provine: Awarded two six-month contract extensions with Apache in the Gulf of Mexico commencing in May 2013. The first six-months will be at a day rate in the low $120s (above previous day rate in the mid $80s) and the second at a day rate in the mid $120s.
  • Gorilla II: Rig is expected to enter the shipyard in 2Q/3Q 2013 for approximately 70 days instead of the previously expected 45 days for repairs and upgrades.
  • J.P. Bussell:  Rig was off rate for 28 days in 4Q 2012 instead of the previously expected 25 days.  Rig is also expected to be off rate for 28 days instead of the previously expected five days in 1Q 2013 for repairs.
  • Ralph Coffman:  Rig was off rate for 11 days in 4Q 2012 for repairs.
  • Rowan Norway:  Changed day rate to low $360s (previously mid $350s) due to upward revision in expected reimbursement for modifications. Rig commenced operations in mid January 2013 and was off rate for 11 days during the first month of the year.

The Company will not realize any day rate revenue during periods of off rate time, and crew costs will be capitalized during rig modifications and/or upgrades.

This summary is provided as a courtesy and is not intended to replace a detailed review of the Monthly Fleet Status Report.  While the Company has attempted to include items it believes are significant, we encourage you to review the Monthly Fleet Status Report in detail.
