Barclays says recent rig orders and bullish outlooks reinforce its view of a structural shift towards deepwater drilling which will drive demand for oil service equipment suitable for these environments. The firm says the tightness in deepwater is a clear positive for DO, RIG, ESV, SDRL and NBL, which enjoy continued dayrate improvements for almost all rig classes.

    Sure... where were they when we were getting face stuffed with ESV, RIG, and DO about 45 days ago? I had several million of those positions and they were calling for it to sink further. Now +25% to +30% higher they are calling for it to go up further? Oh, but little more than a month later suddenly it is different with the massive rigs? Gah....
