Ensco rig off to the US

ENSCO has taken delivery of the seventh and final rig in its Ensco 8500 series. The rig will be heading to the Gulf of Mexico to work for Anadarko, starting in December.

The Ensco 8500 rigs were the first to be recertified by regulators for work in the US Gulf of Mexico following the Macondo incident and have achieved 97% utilisation.
