Pacific Drilling Provides Operational Update

Pacific Drilling S.A. (NYSE: PACD) today provided an update on the status of its ultra-deepwater drillships.

In reference to the January 29 U.S. Bureau of Safety and Environmental Enforcement safety alert regarding GE connectors and bolts, none of Pacific Drilling’s rigs are covered by the directive to suspend operations. However, Pacific Drilling is proactively inspecting the Vetco ExF H-4 LMRP connector bolts on each of its rigs as operations allow. The company has the necessary spare bolts to address any issues detected during inspection. Currently, all of the company’s rigs are operating normally, and no direct revenue implications are expected as a result of this directive.
