    Operations Quarterly Review

    Revenues for the three months ended March 31, 2012 were $2.331 billion, compared with revenues of $2.422 billion during the three months ended December 31, 2011. Contract drilling revenues decreased $35 million due mainly to lower revenue efficiency primarily on Deepwater and Midwater Floaters. Total fleet revenue efficiency was 90.4 percent for the first quarter, compared with 91.9 percent in the fourth quarter 2011. Other revenues decreased $54 million to $117 million for the first quarter 2012, compared with $171 million in the prior quarter, primarily due to decreased levels of low-margin drilling management services activity.
