Sedco 700

The old personnel basket in use Stavanger Norway whilst the Sedco 700 was undergoing inspection and repair. Gives you some idea of the size of the rig in this scale. I understand the hull of the 700 is still in use with new upper deck works, believe it is in the Far East.

It's in West Africa and has been for several years. It's not looking that bad and is still crewed, with the exception of catering and drilling, by expats. Both the barge engineers are original Sedco lads from Aberdeen!

Remind me on the good old days, this picture is taken on Northsea base in Dusavik, next to Stavanger.
