CORRECTION

In the last edition of PETROWATCH we reported that Essar's rig was inspected by Enquest Petro Solutions (‘IOC preparing to spud Cambay well’).

However, Enquest tells us the third party inspection was carried out by Bureau Veritas, not by Enquest. Error regretted.

In a separate comment about the article, ‘Lower your rig rates or else!’ Greatship Global general manager Capt. Rahul Pradhan writes: "Sir, we do not agree with the facts as described in Article 9 of the last edition of PETROWATCH.

To our knowledge there are no High spec JU rigs in India who have reduced their rate to $60,000. In fact, contrary to the same, a driller has refused to accept the rate of $60,000 and has preferred to keep the rigs idle and continue to market them.
