Offshore’s 2015 premium jackup rig survey finds a global fleet that has grown considerably, but perhaps too quickly, in the past two years. Premium jackups included on this survey are rated for water depths of 350 ft (106 m) or greater, drilling depths of at least 25,000 ft (7,600 m), and are currently under contract somewhere in the world. The overall number of working jackups has increased in this year’s survey, a 16% increase from 2013. Some of this increase is attributed to the reintroduction of older, legacy rigs by newer players. Dubai’s Shelf Drilling, for example, has drilling contracts for five LeTourneau and Modec class rigs in West Africa, the UAE, and Mediterranean. These rigs were all built in the early 1980s and acquired from Transocean in late 2012.
