  Seadrill announced that the Jack-up Sale has been completed pursuant to the SPA.   As the Jack-up Sale has completed, the AOD I, AOD II, AOD III, West Callisto, West Ariel, West Cressida and West Leda are now owned by ADES, and ADES employs the crews operating the rigs and holds the drilling contracts related to the rigs.   The total consideration for the Jack-up Sale is USD 628 million in cash, subject to adjustment for working capital and other items, and reimbursement to Seadrill for any project costs spent in relation to the reactivation of the three stacked jack-ups, namely the West Ariel, West Cressida and West Leda ('Reactivation Rigs'). The consideration translates into approx. USD 100 million per rig on a ready-to-drill basis. The proceeds from the Jack-up Sale enable Seadrill to significantly de-leverage its balance sheet and to eliminate outstanding capital expenditure for the Reactivation Rigs.   Source: Seadrill   Join our mailing list here We are #1 on Google and Bing for the "Largest Mobile Energy Network" Come join our community!

  Borr Drilling has entered into an agreement to sell the jack-up drilling rig 'Gyme' for a price of $120 million to an unrelated third party. The 'Gyme' is a 2018 PPL Pacific Class 400 located in Singapore and has not been activated or contracted since its delivery.   The sale of the rig is an undertaking by the Company under its most recent refinancing with PPL Shipyard which was completed early October 2022. The proceeds from the sale will be applied to all outstanding amounts owed on the rig, and excess amounts will be applied to the capitalised interest for the eight other rigs financed by PPL. The transaction is expected to close in the fourth quarter 2022.
