19:53 EDTWFTWeatherford announces further headcount reduction
Weatherford said, "Because of the continuing weak North American market conditions, we plan to further reduce our cost structure to reflect the current environment. During Q2, we successfully completed substantially all of the previously announced headcount reduction of 10,000. The aggregate results of these measures will help mitigate the effects of the downturn, while at the same time, take advantage of the opportunity to develop a leaner structure and a tighter organization. This target has now been revised upward to 11,000 with the increase principally in the U.S with a focus on support positions. Our procurement savings initiative continues to be on track. In addition to our headcount reductions, this quarter, we closed three of our manufacturing and service facilities. We have also closed over 60 operating facilities across North America through the first half of 2015 and plan to close 30 more by the end of the year. All the while, quality, safety and reliability in execution will remain paramount."

07:10 EDTRDCRowan Companies reports fleet contract status update as of July 20, 2015
Rowan Companies announced that its report of drilling rig status and contract information has been updated as of July 20, 2015. The company continues to estimate planned out-of-service time for the second quarter and full-year of 2015 to range from 3% to 6% for its jack-ups and drillships, subject to fleet repositioning and market conditions. No operational downtime is included in projected out-of-service days, but the company estimates jack-up operational downtime to account for approximately 2.5% of in-service days in current and future quarters. Rowan continues to expect drillship operational downtime to be approximately 5% after a break-in period of approximately six months up to one year. Out-of-service days are days where a rig is out-of-service and is not able to earn revenue. The company may be compensated for certain out-of-service days such as shipyard stays or transit periods preceding a contract. However, any such compensation is deferred and recognized over the period of drilling operations. Operational downtime is when a rig is under contract and unable to conduct planned operations due to equipment breakdowns or procedural failures. Unless otherwise indicated, all day rates on the fleet status include estimated amortization of contract mobilization/modification revenues. However, day rates exclude approximately $20 to $30 million of other miscellaneous aggregate annual revenue the company receives during rig operations. Day rates also exclude rebillable revenues which are equally offset by drilling expenses.
