HOUSTON, TX--(Marketwired - Apr 5, 2017) - Vantage Drilling International ("Vantage"), announced today that its subsidiary, Vantage Drilling Africa, has acquired the Hercules 260 , a Marathon LeTourneau Class jack-up drilling unit, from Hercules International Drilling, Ltd., a subsidiary of Hercules Offshore, Inc., for an undisclosed amount and has renamed the rig the Vantage 260 . As part of the acquisition, Vantage Drilling Africa acquired a multi-year drilling contract with ENI Congo.
Vantage is reactivating the Sapphire Driller , a Baker Marine Pacific Class 375 jack-up rig currently warm-stacked offshore of the Republic of Congo, and later this year will substitute it for the Vantage 260.
