However, there could be a possible upside to the spill in the form of increased interest in natural gas drilling and production. The spill also seems to have accelerated the argument for decreased dependence on oil. Natural gas prices remain low but could see improvements as many investors move away from oil.

The company reported its results on the 4th of August with profits declining by 12% for the quarter. Transocean Ltd. research report is available for free by signing up now at
