Awilco sends last rig to scrapyard
UK drilling contractor Awilco Drilling announced on June 22 it had concluded the sale of its only remaining rig for scrap.
The WillHunter semi-submersible has been cold-stacked in Invergordon, in Scotland, since 2016, because of a lack of work opportunities. Keeping it cost-stacked was costing Awilco $1,300 daily, the company has said before.
The rig has been sold to Rota Shipping, which will recycle the rig's parts at the Aliaga shipyard in Turkey.
