Transocean Set For Success To $77



August 25, 2011 – Comments (0) | RELATED TICKERS: RIG

Transocean has been a stock we have been watching closely recently. They have been working hard towards success in their offshore operations. Analysts are expecting Transocean’s stock to grow to $77, and the Trefis Team explains how RIG will get there.


Ultra Deepwater segment driving contract activity

Transocean added $1.5 billion in new contracts in Q2 with offshore activity being driven by new discoveries in Ghana, Vietnam, Brazil and the U.S. Gulf of Mexico. [1] The resumption of activity in the Gulf of Mexico, the commencement of operations of Deepwater Champion in the Black Sea and an improvement in revenue efficiency led to an increase in the profitability in the segment.
