Atwood Oceanics (ATW) announced that its semisubmersible drilling unit, the Atwood Osprey, parted several mooring lines and drifted approximately three nautical miles from its original position during Cyclone Olwyn, which impacted the northwest coast of Australia on March 12. The rig is currently stable with a support vessel in position, and preliminary results indicate minimal damage with an estimated maximum of 30 days out of service time for repairs. No rig personnel were injured in the event. The Atwood Osprey is contracted to Chevron Australia (CVX) and was on location at the Iago 1B well. The well had been shut down and secured in accordance with Chevron's cyclone demobilization procedures and the rig had ballasted down and evacuated all its rig personnel in advance of the cyclone. Atwood Oceanics is coordinating its efforts with Chevron, the Australian offshore regulator and other affected parties.

08:44 EDTBASBasic Energy sees Q1 revenue down 32%-34%
Roe Patterson, Basic's president and CEO, stated, "The operating environment continues to be challenging and we are reacting quickly to our customers' requests for lower pricing for our services. Stimulation services pricing concessions have increased to 25%-30%, which is up from the 15%-20% range we experienced earlier in the first quarter. Pricing concessions for our other services remain consistent with what we reported in our January operating update. We continue to maximize utilization and protect market share with rate reductions when and where possible. We continue our efforts to reduce costs and scale down our operations to match customer activity. Negotiations to lower costs for sand, chemicals, fuel, supplies, etc. with our vendors and suppliers are ongoing, and we continue to make progress. Preserving liquidity is our main focus and our efforts to reduce capital spending have been successful. Our headcount is now down by 14% since its peak in November 2014 and we continue to adjust personnel costs to mitigate pricing concessions. Adverse weather has affected activity to date in March throughout our footprint. With the weather impact we experienced in February, and so far in March, combined with the increase in price concessions for stimulation services, we now expect first quarter revenue to be 32%-34% lower sequentially compared to our previous guidance of 21%-26% lower."
