Transocean scraps two more floaters and delays more newbuilds

Transocean Ltd (“Transocean”) today issued its updated fleet summary report, with the company announcing its plan to retire a further two floating rigs from its operational fleet as well as delay the delivery of two newbuild drillships. Transocean has classified both the GSF Celtic Sea and Transocean Amirante units as being held for sale, with the GSF Celtic Sea being either sold for use in a non-drilling capacity or recycled, whilst the Transocean Amirante will be recycled. Transocean has been the most active scrapper of rigs thus far in 2015 and has indicated its intent to scrap a total of 20 floaters. Meanwhile the company also announced its plan to delay the delivery of its two newbuild drillships currently under construction at the Jurong Shipyard in Singapore. Transocean has delayed the delivery of each unit by 24 months, with delivery now expected in Q2 2019 and Q1 2020. This follows Transocean’s recent trend of delaying newbuild assets, the company recently delayed delivery of its five newbuild jackup rigs.
