       Credentialed Team Brings Turnkey Services Back to Gulf of Mexico

Business Wire

HOUSTON -- September 16, 2013

Commander Drilling Technologies (CDT) is pleased to announce its formation as
the leading provider of turnkey drilling and completion services in the Gulf
of Mexico.

With a distinguished management team, the newly formed company fills a unique
industry niche, particularly for independent producers; no one else offers
turnkey drilling services in the Gulf of Mexico. A 30-year history in the
region helps support that expertise.

CDT management is led by Stephen Morrison, an experienced and respected
executive in the offshore turnkey industry. Mr. Morrison was previously
employed by Applied Drilling Technologies Inc. (ADTI), a subsidiary of
Transocean (NYSE:RIG), from 1996-2012; he led ADTI as President from
2007-2012. Mr. Morrison will be supported by a highly skilled team that has
years of experience in the offshore turnkey market.

According to Mr. Morrison, “I am excited to be part of this new company that
is bringing back turnkey drilling and completion services to the Gulf of
Mexico. Our entire team looks forward to once again drilling wells for our
supportive group of clients.”

Global Energy Capital LP (“GEC”), based in Houston, Texas, will invest
alongside CDT’s management team.
