All their rigs are in demand, Transocean want to keep the rig day rate up & not give in to customers requesting discounts. This along with excellent market value has the likes of RDC & VTG getting allot of attention for their rigs.
The Saphire looks to be going to Indonesia. Topaz will stay in Vietnam for most of 2011. The Emerald Driller will be out of contract in Thailand come May 1st. This looks to be heading out of Thai waters & may go to Malaysia also.
The new builds are doing well in India for ONGC & they would take on more, this would result in discounts but this would also give VTG market share in India!!
