Transocean to scrap four more floating rigs

Transocean Ltd. (“Transocean”) has announced its intention to continue with its recent wave of rig divestments by scrapping the Deepwater Expedition, Transocean Legend, Transocean Rather, and GSF Arctic III units. The scrapping of these four floating rigs means that Transocean has in the past four months scrapped a total of 16 floating rigs, as the company looks to reposition itself amid the current downturn in the offshore drilling market. All four of the units are currently held for sale by Transocean.
