Pacific Drilling Statement Regarding the Status of Pacific Scirocco and Pacific Santa Ana


August 12, 2011 - The Pacific Scirocco is currently undergoing client requested upgrades as well as modifications to ensure engine reliability.   The rig has mobilized to a quayside in South Africa in order to complete the project prior to commencing operations in Nigeria.  These preemptive repairs will delay contract commencement, potentially until the end of the fourth quarter of 2011.  However, we expect that the delay will be covered under loss of hire insurance.

The Pacific Santa Ana will undergo similar engine modifications prior to delivery during the fourth quarter of 2011.
