There is a shortage of active rigs in the GOM at 40 (we had over 100 working a few years ago that migrated to other areas due to drilling moratorium). That coupled with LLS trading over $125 is driving day rates higher. World comsumption of oil is only going higher and I think we will see $90K day rates soon.
Hero has 10 rigs that are cold stacked but targeted to sell and they could fetch from $40 to 80 million if sold to the MOPU segment, (much higher than scrap).
With rig markets getting tight, they should do very well on those sales and it would not surprise me if they have already made a sale of one of those.
