The Company used $40.9 million in cash from operations in 2021 compared to $52.5 million used during the same period of 2020.

Ihab Toma, CEO, commented: “The second quarter represented more evidence that the industry is back on the way to recovery where we have seen the Aquamarine Driller and Sapphire Driller commencing their new contracts in Malaysia and Equatorial Guinea, respectively. In addition, shortly after the quarter concluded, the Soehanah returned to work in Indonesia, reflecting six of the Company’s seven rigs working. The safe and seamless return to work by those rigs within weeks of each other is a testament to the operations team at Vantage, of whom I am very proud.”

Mr. Toma continued, “In addition to the three rigs returning to service, we are delighted to announce that, the Sapphire Driller and the Aquamarine Driller, were recently awarded three-year contracts to work offshore Qatar, commencing in February and March 2022, respectively. We look forward to these multi-year programs commencing alongside the Emerald Driller’s campaign in Qatar where we have operated since 2016.”

Vantage, a Cayman Islands exempted company, is an offshore drilling contractor, with a fleet of two ultra-deepwater drillships, and five premium jackup drilling rigs. Vantage’s primary business is to contract drilling units, related equipment and work crews primarily on a dayrate basis to drill oil and natural gas wells globally for major, national and independent oil and gas companies.
