Breakout session at the EnerCom conference

During Nabors’ breakout session at the 2018 EnerCom conference, management was asked the following questions:

  • Could you talk a little about how the upside of the new build deployment within the JV in Saudi works and how it works with the other JV that you’re not a part of?
  • How long do you suspect the typical first terms of the contracts to last once they’ve moved into your JV?
  • Can you comment on some of the new builds coming out of the JV? Are they going to be oil developments or more natural gas developments? Are any of them unconventional?
  • Are the rigs you would theoretically use for your conventional plays be different from those that you would use for an unconventional?
  • What are your thoughts on the Canadian market?
  • How many “Super-Spec rig” additions are going to be made to the fleet by the end of 2018?
  • How many rigs are upgradeable to “super-spec” status in the market?
  • Do you have an outlook of oil prices in the next few years?
