Overall Review: Leading-Edge Rates Steady to Slightly Up. A total of 90% of surveyed contractors reported leading-edge day rates were stable the last 3 months, matching the number that responded similarly in the prior survey. The remaining 10% reported they had been able to push through some increases during the period.
This is the second survey in a row in which none of the surveyed drillers reported a decline in leading-edge rates. While half of drillers expect no change in pricing the next 6 months, 25% expect rig pricing to rise by 5%–10% and the rest are uncertain about rate direction.
