New third-party logistics provider:

Transocean is beginning the transition process for our primary logistics partner from CEVA to Kuehne and Nagel (K&N). K&N has been nominated to provide support for our primary delivery locations in Houston, Aberdeen, and Singapore, as well as shipments originating with vendors in other locations for shipment to our rigs.

Over the next few weeks, we will be implementing changes in the delivery instructions for new purchase orders and updating delivery instructions for material expected for delivery beyond our transition timeline. The schedule for these locations will vary slightly due to business requirements. Note: there is no action required as a result of this message. Please consider this as an alert for activities to come.

The schedule for transition is:


January 18, 2017:

  • All new PO's issued for UK delivery will include the new delivery address for K&N.
  • All existing undelivered orders will be updated for K&N delivery.

February 1, 2017:

  • Delivery attempts to the CEVA facility will be rejected.

US/Houston/Singapore/Other locations:

January 18, 2017:

  • New PO's will include delivery instructions for K&N.

January 23, 2017:

  • All existing open orders will be updated for delivery to K&N.

February 6, 2017:

  • Any delivery attempts for Transocean will be rejected by CEVA Houston and Singapore.

K&N are being provided with copies of all affected PO's to ensure a smooth transition process. We anticipate that, beyond a change in delivery address, this transition should be seamless for you. As always, we appreciate your diligence in monitoring delivery requirements. Your heightened awareness will be critical in this period.
