DryShips Inc., an international provider of marine transportation services for drybulk and petroleum cargos, and through its majority owned subsidiary, Ocean Rig UDW Inc., of offshore deepwater drilling services, has announced that Ocean Rig as signed definitive documentation with Total E&P Angola, following the previously announced Letter of Award, for its ultra deepwater drillship "Ocean Rig Skyros."

The contract is for five wells or a minimum of 275 days for drilling offshore West Africa, with an estimated backlog of approximately $190 million, and is expected to commence upon delivery of the drillship from the shipyard, in October 2013.

The company said it has also received a Letter of Award for its ultra deepwater drillship "Ocean Rig Skyros," from a major oil company for a six-year contract for drilling offshore West Africa, with an estimated backlog of approximately $1.3 billion.

The Letter of Award is subject to completion of definitive documentation and receipt of regulatory approvals. The contract is expected to commence in direct continuation of the previous contract before the first quarter of 2015.

As a result of this LOA, as of today, Ocean Rig's total contracted backlog (including LOAs) stands at about $6.1 billion, primarily with investment grade or strong counterparties, the company said.
