Japan Drilling Company scraps jackup rig

Japan Drilling Company (JDC) has sold 1981-built jackup rig Sagadril 2 (formerly Hakuryu-7) earlier this week.

JDC says the rig was sold to an overseas entity for demolition, although did not provide any further information.

The Mitsubishi-built jackup has mainly been operating in the Gulf of Mexico over the last 20 years.
