The update mirrors reports earlier this month that the US independent was poised to take the contrarian step of selling promising offshore assets in the emerging oil and gas powerhouse to focus on shale plays and Africa.

A previous Transocean report in July showed the Deepwater Millenium drillship working in Ghana until July 2011, then heading to an engagement in Brazil from July 2011 to May 2013.

A report released Monday shows the rig in Ghana through October at a dayrate of $576,000, with the price and location of the Anadarko contract from December 2011 to July 2013 “to be announced.”

“Subsequent operating location is yet to be determined, and the dayrate under the contract could change depending on the country of future operations,” Transocean said in the report.
