Rowan Companies plc gives an update on notable events.

  • EXL I:  Changed day rate to mid $220s (previously mid $210s) due to amortization adjustment.
  • J.P. Bussell:  Rig is expected to be off rate for five days in 1Q 2013.
  • Scooter Yeargain:  Rig is expected to enter the shipyard in January 2013 (previously March 2013) for 105 days (previously 135 days) for customer-required equipment upgrades.

The Company states it will not realize any day rate revenue during periods of off rate time, and crew costs will be capitalized during rig modifications and/or upgrades.
