ATWOOD OCEANICS, INC.,
Atwood Oceanics is positioned for growth. Established in 1968, Atwood has long been a leader in
delivering safe, reliable and efficient offshore drilling services to our clients around the world. We currently
own ten drilling rigs that operate in many of the world's major offshore hydrocarbon basins, and we maintain
offices on six continents. We have a multinational workforce of approximately 1,400 people who deliver
high-quality offshore drilling services to a diverse set of clients.
We are expanding our rig fleet significantly by building three state-of-the-art ultra-deepwater floaters and
three high-specification jack-ups that will position us for even greater success. The Atwood Condor, a 10,000 ft.
water depth capable dynamically positioned semisubmersible, is slated for delivery in mid-2012. It will be followed
by the Atwood Mako, Atwood Manta and Atwood Orca, Pacific Class 400-foot jack-ups with extensive offline
capabilities and ample accommodations. The Atwood Advantage and The Atwood Achiever, dynamically-positioned,
dual derrick ultra deepwater drillships rated to operate in water depths up to 12,000 feet and drill to a depth of 40,000
feet, join the fleet in 2013 and 2014, respectively.
