    Word that BP PLC has stamped its Helios on plans to inject $900 million in capital expenditures (capex) into the UK North Sea this year-and the same again in 2001-confounded the old newspaperman's adage.

    The rise in oil and natural gas prices that hoisted jack up rig demand in the second quarter also drove revenues higher for Houston-based drilling contractor Global Marine Inc.
