You have to build it.

Offshore, a jackup rig will take 2-3 years and a semi 3-4 years.

4 doesn't seem that unbelievable, especially for an offshore and assuming union labor. I thought the ANWR drilling was to be land-based and I had forgotten that the bulk of what we're after would be offshore. So where do the other 6 years come from once the thing is built?
