Transocean has won a contract for its GSF Constellation I drillship in the United Arab Emirates (UAE).
The win comes after the company said yesterday it had agreed with oil major Shell, to delay two drillships both by 12 months.
The dayrate for the drillship will be $104,000.
Transocean said the GSF Rig, which is classified as held for sale, will be recycled.
The company revealed it has reached an agreement with the state of Alabama for a $20million settlement following the 2010 Deepwater Horizon disaster.
The decision was announced earlier this month by Governor Robert Bentley who said the region had suffered “tremendous” losses since the spill five years ago.
Transocean, which has offices in Aberdeen, has remained tight-lipped in recent weeks over job losses from its North Sea operations.
It is understood Transocean has been in consultation with staff over job losses.
However it has only responded to media enquiries by saying that it does “not respond to rumours”.
