  • Fundamentals for offshore drilling, equipment and services are not supported at current commodity prices
  • Capex is collapsing with the ~30% reduction in global spending, with drilling programs deferred and contracts terminated
  • Jackups and floaters are equally at risk, with COVID-19 potentially a lagging impact on crew changes and other operations
  • Dayrates are at risk with operators requesting concession across all service and product lines
