Pacific Drilling S.A. announced that their latest generation drillship, the Pacific Scirocco, has received a Letter of Award from Total E&P Nigeria Limited, subject to completion of formalities with relevant government agencies in the near future, to perform exploration and development work in Nigeria.

The minimum duration of the award is for a one-year initial term at a dayrate of $470,000 plus mobilization and client requested upgrades. The agreement further contemplates two one-year options at Total’s discretion.

“We are very pleased to announce a new core relationship with Total, a leading deepwater operator, consistent with our vision to work with the best in the industry,” commented Pacific Drilling CEO Chris Beckett. “This represents Pacific Drilling’s third commitment from a major oil company, including the two previously announced contracts for the Pacific Santa Ana and the Pacific Bora both contracted to Chevron in the Gulf of Mexico and Nigeria respectively.”

Pacific Drilling’s fourth ultra-deepwater drillship, the Pacific Mistral, is under construction at Samsung Heavy Industries. The Mistral is on target for on time delivery in May 2011 and is the subject of advanced discussions with various clients. In March 2011 Pacific Drilling ordered two additional drillships from Samsung Heavy Industries, the Pacific Khamsin and the Pacific Sharav, scheduled for delivery in April and September 2013 respectively.
