Why did Pacific Drilling decide to specialize in high-specification floating rigs?

We believe that the greatest opportunities in the offshore oil and gas industry will be found in technically challenging or remote deepwater fields.
We have chosen to focus only on this segment of the drilling market because there are great advantages from fleet consistency, such as the ability to optimize our maintenance and operating systems and inventories and supply chain processes.
