Deep Ocean Ascension off Cape Town, South Africa

Just after sunset, the offshore Drillship Deep Ocean Ascension anchored off Cape Town awaiting transit to the waters of the Gulf of Mexico. The ship had been recently built in South Korea.

 

This ship was owned by Pride International. Pride was bought by Ensco Offshore in 2011. She was renamed to the undescriptive Ensco DS-3.

 

I took this from my balcony at Bantry Bay Suites.
