Transocean scraps seven floating rigs

Transocean Ltd. (Transocean) is set to incur a non-cash fourth-quarter charge of USD100 - USD140 million after deciding to scrap another seven rigs due to a market slump that has hit utilisation and dayrates. The world’s largest rig manager said in its latest fleet update it would be disposing of the lower-specification deep-water and mid-water floaters Sedco 710, Sovereign Explorer, Sedco 700, Sedco 601, JW McLean, GSF Arctic 1 and Falcon 100. It brings the total tally of rigs being scrapped in 2014 to 11 after the company already decided to ditch the Sedneth 701, Sedco 703, Sedco 709 and CK Rhein Jr.
