Deepwater Rigs: Ocean Apex & Ocean Onyx

Ensuring our fleet remains competitive in the deepwater segment, we have committed to providing new capacity in this segment.  In early 2012, we decided to construct the Ocean Onyx at AmFELS in Brownsville, Texas with a delivery of Q3 2013.  Seven months later, we again committed to this segment by building the Ocean Apex at Jurong in Singapore with a delivery Q2 2014.  These two deepwater rigs with the latest technology and newest equipment will ensure that Diamond remains competitive in the semisubmersible deepwater segment.

Ocean Onyx Highlights:  Maximum hook-load capacity of 750 tons, 15k five-ram preventer, water depth capabilities up to 6,000 feet, drilling depth capabilities up to 30,000 feet, and quarters of 140 personnel.  See Spec Sheet for further details.
