Global jackup utilization in September was down slightly as rigs in a few different regions, including the Middle East, completed contracts and were released. However, we expect that some of these will return to work shortly, and the count should improve. For floating rigs, the number of contracted units increased by two from the beginning to the end of the month. During October, however, there are semis in some regions scheduled to complete contracts with no follow-up work in place, and we believe the number of contracted units could decline slightly.

The global jackup count in the month of August was unchanged, starting and ending the month at 345. Most regions that had any rig count change during the month varied by only one unit. The floating rig count, however, fell by six units from 115 early in the month to 109 on August 31. but only two of the six rigs were released and stacked with no follow-up contracts in place. The remaining four units were idle but preparing for upcoming work and therefore by definition considered as not under contract. Africa and North America each lost two contracted units during the month, the most of any region. However, these counts are expected to increase in September.

The number of worldwide contracted jackups ended July where it started, at 344 units. While the number for the month was unchanged, it still represents over a 20-rig increase since January. Southeast Asia, the North Sea and Mexico have been responsible for the largest overall increases during the year. Like the jackup fleet, the floating rig fleet has seen an increase in the average number of contracted units from January to July. The average 115 contracted units during July is an increase of only one rig from June, but nearly 9% higher than the average 105 contract floating rigs in January. South America, the North Sea Africa and Southeast Asia have all seen increases in the average number of contracted units since the start of 2021.

The global jackup rig count increased by a net of four in April, driven mainly by a three-rig gain in Southeast Asia. Activity in the Middle East, the largest jackup market in the world, declined by one during the month. At the end of the month, the number of contracted rigs had increased by seven since the beginning of the year. For floating rigs, the rig count at the end of April was up by six from January, while Africa, Southeast Asia, Europe and South America all saw a one or two-rig increase during April.

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.
