The past few days or so have been quite eventful for Ensco, and the stock of the company has gained significant strength. The improving sentiments in the offshore drilling sector are led by the positivity of oil producers.

Ensco has used timely acquisitions to grow into one of the leading offshore drilling companies, and the addition of Atwood is another major milestone in its progression. By acquiring Atwood at a pivotal time in the market cycle, Ensco purchased very high-quality assets at compelling prices as values for the highest-specification assets are at a critical inflection point.

Additionally, these high-specification assets should further ESV's ability to meet increasing customer demand and strengthen its competitive position.
