Angola’s Rig Count Is 26, With Chevron as the most active driller

Chevron has been active on seven (7) rigs in Angola since October 2013, maintaining the rig count through November to the last week of December 2013.
The U. S. major is closely followed by TOTAL, which deployed six rigs in October and November, and increased the fleet to seven in December.

ENI and BP come a distant third, with rig count of three each, throughout the period under review. ExxonMobil was drilling with two rigs, throughout October and November and most of December 2013. Cobalt Energy, the American minnow, has the same rig count as ExxonMobil. Maersk deployed one rig throughout the three months. Sonangol did not drill at all in October and November. It has been active in December, with one rig.

Chevron is drilling with BBLT Platform drilling Rig, Maersk Deliverer, Tran Honor, Trident XIV, Hercules 267, West Setia Platform Drilling Rig and West Vendecor Platform Drilling Rig. But for the accident on Perro Negro 6, which sank the Jack-up facility, the company would have had eight rigs working for it throughout the period. TOTAL’s drilling fleet include Ocean Olympia, Pride Africa DS-1, Pride Africa DS-2, Saipem 12000, Ocean Skyros, West Gemini PP-C Unit, West Eclipse, Pride Africa DS-7.

BP deploys D. Luanda (DSL), Deepsea Stavanger and Ensco DS 6. ENI:  Ocean Poseidon, Scarabeo 7 and Scarabeo 9. ExxonMobil uses GSF Celtic Sea and Transocean Rather. Maersk is on West Polaris and Sonangol is utilizing Sapphire Driller.
