Commenting today, Per Wullf, CEO and President of Seadrill Management Ltd., said: "The offshore drilling market continues to be challenging however we are seeing an improvement in the level of bidding activity. Most of the new work is for short term contracts at or near cash flow breakeven levels, and 2017 is expected to remain challenging. However, we expect the market to gradually improve as costs have been reset across the value chain and more drilling activity will be needed to avoid accelerated production declines."
