Global offshore contract driller Rowan Companies announced that ExxonMobil has exercised the third of four options for the Rowan Relentless, an R-Class ultra-deepwater drillship.

The option will be used for operations in the US Gulf of Mexico and has an expected duration of 180 days, said a press release from the provider of well drilling services to the petroleum industry.

The Rowan Relentless has been under contract with ExxonMobil since September 2018, it said.

Rowan is a global provider of contract drilling services with a fleet of 25 mobile offshore drilling units, composed of 21 self-elevating jack-up rigs and four ultra-deepwater drillships.  

The Company's fleet operates worldwide, including the United States Gulf of Mexico, Mexico, the United Kingdom and Norwegian sectors of the North Sea, the Middle East, the Mediterranean Sea, Central and South America.

Additionally, the Company is a 50/50 partner in a joint venture with Saudi Aramco, entitled ARO Drilling, that owns a fleet of seven self-elevating jack-up rigs that operate in the Arabian Gulf.
