UK-based offshore drilling contractor Ensco has sold a number of its drilling rigs for scrap value including semi-subs, drillships, and jack-ups. 

According to Ensco’s latest fleet status report, two 2004-built semi-submersible drilling rigs, Ensco 6003 and Ensco 6004, have been sold for scrap value with the sale price in line with net book value of the rig.

Further, Ensco’s two drillships of a DP Gusto 10,000 design, Ensco DS-1 and Ensco DS-2, have also been sold for scrap value. Both rigs were built in 1999.

The drilling contractor also sold two jack-up drilling rigs. The first rig, Ensco 91, is of a Hitachi Zosen Drill Hope C-150 design built in 1980, and the second one, Ensco 58, is of an F&G L-780 Mod II design built in 1981.

In addition, two DP3 Samsung drillships, Ensco DS-4 and Ensco DS-5, have been stacked in Spain. These two drillships were built in 2010 and 2011, respectively.
