It's not one phrase. It's in two parts: "<company name>’s owned rigs"
and "the leased fleet". "rigs" can mean oil rigs, but it can also mean
large trucks, etc. It depends on the context. "leased fleet" could refer
to either ships or vehicles.

Context is king, as usual.

Again this will depend on the context. In finance "warrant" can mean several
things. The following in the Kenkyusha 新英和大辞典 entry on "warrant" is an
