Transocean Ltd. announced that its ultra-deepwater drillship Dhirubhai Deepwater KG1 has set a new world record for the deepest water depth by an offshore drilling rig.

ONGC reported that well # 1-D-1 in Exploratory Block KG-DWN-2005/1 was spud June 18. Exploration well # 1-D-1 is the third well to be drilled beyond the 10,000 feet water depth mark.
