Exodus of GOM Rigs Expected to Translate into Higher Service Costs

Up to 30 Gulf of Mexico (GOM) jack-up rigs will have been moved to international waters between late 2005 and early 2007 — a 25% capacity reduction in the GOM fleet in just over a year’s time — which will lead to domestic producers paying more and using more fixed contracts to tap into their reserves, Raymond James energy analysts noted in the latest “Stat of the Week.”
