Of the 406 self-contained and tender-assisted platform drilling rigs throughout the world, 287 are drilling, 25 are idle, and 94 are stacked without contract; there are four rigs under construction. After mentioning that drilling contractors in the Gulf of Mexico may experience an upturn in activity <from the present all-time low> in summer 1984, and that offshore California and China are expected to emerge as future bright spots, the article lists these rigs under their geographical areas, and for each rig gives the name of the owner and operator and the name, location, drilling capacity and status <i.e., whether drilling, etc.> of the rig.
