Executive Summary

Offshore oilfield services are one of the most important segments of the oilfield value chain as it provides equipments and services to help producers explore, extract, and transport oil and natural gas. Offshore oilfield assets can be broadly classified into two categories, namely Rigs and Support vessels. Rigs are gigantic structures or machines that are used in the process of drilling a wellbore. In order to drill oil wells offshore, either a floating or bottom-supported rig is required.

Floaters are offshore drilling platform without a fixed base and are used for drilling in water depths of more than 100 meters. Floaters belong to mobile bottom structured drilling structure rig type and it can be further classified as drillships and semisubmersible rigs. Floaters can also be categorized as Midwater Floaters, Deepwater Floaters or Ultra-deepwater Floaters depending on water depth.

The global deepwater market is experiencing surge in demand for floater rigs. Rise in demand for floaters is majorly driven by increase in global offshore expenditure, robust oil prices, increase in rig count and deep and ultra deepwater exploration and production. However, factors such as offshore cost inflation, limited access to resources and complex deepwater developments are posing challenge to growth of the industry. Major trends prevailing in the industry includes shift towards drillships and advent of newbuild floaters.
