The global jackup and floating rig counts continued to track upward during March. The number of jackups under contract increased by a net of four units to 329, while floating rig usage, driven mostly by the drillship fleet, rose by three to 111. The North Sea saw three additional units go under contract during the month, while South America accounted for two of the three-rig increase in the floating rig fleet.

Jackup count stable; floaters rising. The worldwide jackup rig count in February was down by just two units versus where it began, but it had regained one of those by early March and the count is expected to register a positive gain during the rest of the month. As for floating rigs, the month of February saw a three-rig increase, which was expected. Demand for floating rigs is gaining momentum, and we believe the upward trend will continue in March.

Jackup rig demand held steady during the first month of the New Year, as declines in Asia were offset by net gains elsewhere. Floating rig demand fell by four units as more rigs finished contracts, but with 16 non-working, but future committed units preparing to begin contracts, and additional rig tenders on the horizon, demand should recover over the next few months.
