The number of active rigs drilling in Angola was reduced by three in April 2016. The total fell from 17 to 14. The Maersk Delivererdrilling for Chevron was cancelled; so was the Transocean’s Global Santa Fe (GSF) Driller I, drilling for ExxonMobil.
Deliverer and Driller I were drilling in Block 14 and Block 15 respectively in March 2016.
The Ensco DS-6, which was in action on Block 31 for BP in March, is now on standby and not even in Angola.
