Supplementary notes

The figures include all marketed contracted jackups, semi-submersibles, and drillships. Marketed contracted reflects all marketed rigs that have a contract in place, and by extension, marketed utilization refers to the utilization rate of marketed contracted rigs.
This does not reflect the number of rigs actually working at any given time as some contracted rigs may be moving between locations, undergoing maintenance, waiting on weather, and so on.
This statistic was assembled using several editions of updated data from the source. The figure for 2017 refers to the period of one year prior to September 28, 2018.
