Drill Ship/Drill Rig

Theres been alot of talk of pay for the towing industry, but little about current drilling pay for Mates/DPO’s. A crewman and I were discussing where we could go from where we are at now, IMR vessels in GOM, and we agreed the only place up for us were the drill ships as Mate/DPO’s. We are both long in the tooth so it is not an attractive thought. We are senior Mate/DPO’s and been with our company quite a while.

Still, can anyone chime in on day rates, benefits, etc.?
