The sustained low oil and gas prices has resulted E&P companies to trim their budgets, thus postponing exploration and production program plans, amid weaker cash flows. During prior periods of high dayrates and rig utilization rates, drilling contractors have responded to increased E&P operator demand by increasing the supply of rigs, through the ordering of construction of new units. This growth in new construction led to an oversupply of rigs and has caused a subsequent decline in dayrates and rig utilization rates, due to intense competition in pricing among the market players and renegotiation of contracts by E&P companies.
Despite current market conditions, long-term outlook for the offshore drilling sector remains positive, as there is an increased interest of E&P companies to explore new prospects in deepwater fields and rise in demand for energy and petrochemicals. The oil prices are expected to stabilize by early 2017, which is expected to lead to an increased E&P activity resulting in a promising scenario for offshore drilling rig market.
