Vantage Drilling Company, incorporated on November 14, 2007, is a Cayman Islands-based international offshore drilling company focused on operating a fleet of modern, high specification drilling units. The Company’s principal business is to contract drilling units, related equipment and work crews, primarily on a dayrate basis to drill oil and natural gas wells for its customers. It also provides construction supervision services for, and operates and manages, drilling units owned by others. Through its fleet of drilling units, it is a provider of offshore contract drilling services to major, national and independent oil and natural gas companies, focused primarily on international markets. The Company’s fleet consists of three DSME Ultra Deepwater Drillships, one DSME Ultra Deepwater Dual Derrick Drillship under construction, two managed DSME Ultra Deepwater Drillships, and four BMC 375 Jackups.
A jackup rig is a mobile, self-elevating drilling platform equipped with legs that are lowered to the ocean floor until a foundation is established for support, at which point the hull is raised out of the water into position to conduct drilling and workover operations. All of the Company’s jackup rigs were built at PPL Shipyard in Singapore. The design of its jackup rigs is the Baker Marine Pacific Class 375. These units are ultra-premium jackup rigs with independent legs capable of drilling in up to 375 feet of water, a cantilever drilling floor and a total drilling depth capacity of approximately 30,000 feet. Drillships are self-propelled, dynamically positioned and suited for drilling in remote locations because of their mobility and large load carrying capacity. All of its drillships are designed for drilling in water depths of up to 12,000 feet, with a total vertical drilling depth capacity of up to 40,000 feet. The drillships’ hull design has a variable deck load of approximately 20,000 tons and measures approximately 781 feet long by 137 feet wide. All of its drillships were built at Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering shipyard in South Korea.
