Default Ocean Confidence Rig

I am really hoping for tolerable weather to make a rig/tuna trip Thurs night. In looking at Hilton's to get an idea on blue water location I notice a rig listed as Ocean Confidence that is approx 16 miles due south of Petronius. I am not familiar with this rig? Anybody know if it goes by another name or have any knowledge about it? Maybe it's a drill ship?

Thanks

Ocean Confidence is 1.5 miles east of Thunderhawk, its about five miles from Thunderhorse. It is a MODU and will be going to Desoto Canyon soon.

MSYellowfin,

You can have confidence that the Confidence is situated where Hilton's shows it to be - 16+ NM south of Petronius.

If you go to "Floaters" you will see that we updated the floater info on the 15th - the Confidence arrived on location on the 12th. It is sitting on a color change, and is likely to move next month when it goes to ATP Oil and Gas for 60 days.

Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or issues and I will do my best to help.

Tom: Love your Hilton's! Thanks for the response and confirmation. Weather permitting I am heading that direction Thurs PM and will take a look at it. I wonder if it's short time onsite will affect what tuna might or might not be there? One way to find out!

Thanks again, Kudo's to your product and your response

Hey guys,

Please avoid the area around the Deepwater Horizon which is WSW of the Confidence - it had an explosion, is on fire, and may sink today.

Prayers sent.

Tom
