Ocean Rig UDW Inc., a global provider of offshore deepwater drilling services, headquartered in Cyprus, today announced that it has received a Letter of Award for its ultra deepwater drillship “Ocean Rig Olympia”, from a major oil company.

The Letter of Award is for a three- year contract for drilling offshore West Africa, with an estimated backlog of approximately $652 million. The Letter of Award is subject to completion of definitive documentation and receipt of regulatory approvals. The  contract is expected to commence in direct continuation of the Ocean Rig Olympia’s  existing contract in West Africa. The customer would have the option to extend the  contract for two periods of one year each, with the first option exercisable within one  year from the commencement date under the drilling contract, and the second option  exercisable within one year after the date of exercise of the first option.

With this latest fixture, Ocean Rig no longer has any rigs available in 2012.
