Offshore drilling rig owners Ensco plc record revenues of US$1.3-Billion in their third quarter 2013 financial report.

Highlights:

  • Record Revenues Totaling $1.3 Billion

  • Record Earnings of $379 Million

  • Earnings Per Share Grew 9%
$11 Billion of Contracted Revenue Backlog
  • 
ENSCO DS-7 Ultra-Deepwater Drillship and ENSCO 120 Ultra-Premium Jackup Delivered

Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer Dan Rabun stated, “During the third quarter, we accepted delivery of two more rigs that will commence multi-year contracts later this year - - ENSCO DS-7, an ultra-deepwater drillship, and ENSCO 120, an ultra-premium harsh environment jackup. These newbuild rigs plus six more under construction will drive revenue and earnings growth in the years ahead.”

Mr. Rabun added, “I commend our capital projects teams in South Korea and Singapore for their diligence in overseeing the successful delivery of four new rigs over the past year alone.”

Earnings increased $35 million to a record $379 million. Revenues grew 13% to a record $1.266 billion in third quarter 2013 from $1.124 billion a year ago. The average day rate for the fleet increased 13% to $225,000, mostly due to adding ENSCO 8506 and ENSCO DS-6 to the active fleet, as well as higher day rates for several floaters and an increase in the jackup segment average day rate.

Contract drilling expense was $619 million, up from $507 million in third quarter 2012. This increase was primarily due to adding new floaters to the active fleet as well as a previously anticipated increase in unit labor costs. As reported a year ago, favorable settlements reduced contract drilling expense by $31 million in third quarter 2012.
