Going Deep With Seadrill

On Monday, Seadrill (SDRL) highlighted on the Q2 earnings call that deepwater drilling remains a very hot sector with limited available rigs for the next couple of years. This was a theme highlighted at the beginning of the year as drilling in the Gulf of Mexico had picked back up.

The company provides offshore drilling services to the oil and gas industry worldwide. Its services include drilling, completion, and maintenance of offshore wells; production drilling and well maintenance; and well services. The company owns a fleet of offshore rigs and has 18 new builds under construction.

While the adjusted earnings slightly missed estimates, Seadrill continues to see huge demand for its rigs and tightness in the market for the next few years. The company has one of the youngest fleets in the industry and continues to benefit from an aggressive new build program.
