     As  of  August  30,  2002,  approximately  76 percent and 42 percent of the
Company's  International  and  U.S.  Floater  Contract Drilling Services segment
fleet  days  were  committed  for  the  remainder of 2002 and for the year 2003,
respectively.  As of August 30, 2002, approximately 51 percent and 25 percent of
the  Company's  total marine fleet days were committed for the remainder of 2002
and  for  the year 2003, respectively. As of August 30, 2002, a $5,000 change in
the dayrate assumption associated with uncommitted fleet days in 2003 equates to
an  estimated  $0.55  change  in  earnings  per  share.

Forward-looking  statements described above include, but are not limited to, rig
demand  and  changes  to  earnings  per share resulting from a change in dayrate

success  by  producers, oil and gas prices, demand for offshore and inland water
rigs,  competition  and market conditions in the contract drilling industry, the
Company's  ability  to  successfully  integrate  the  operations  of  acquired
businesses,  possible  delay  or  cancellation  of  drilling  contracts,  work
stoppages,  the  Company's  ability  to  enter  into  and  the  terms  of future
contracts,  the  availability  of  qualified  personnel, labor relations and the
outcome  of  negotiations  with  unions representing workers, operating hazards,
political  and  other  uncertainties  inherent in non-U.S. operations (including
exchange  and  currency  fluctuations),  war,  terrorism  and  cancellation  or
unavailability  of  insurance  coverage,  the  impact  of  governmental laws and
regulations,  the adequacy of sources of liquidity, the effect of litigation and
contingencies  and  other  factors  discussed in the Company's Form 10-Q for the
quarter  ended June 30, 2002, Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2001 and
